NBL player Trevor Bauer has been accused of sexually and physically assaulting a woman.
It follows the testimony of his accuser Ms Hill, who has lodged new evidence against the Los Angeles Dodgers Star – including a series of damming text exchanges.
Who is Trevor Bauer accuser Ms Hill?
Trevor Bauer’s accuser has only been identified as “Ms. Hill” at her attorney's request, and her personal details remain scarce.
The 27-year-old said she had sexual encounters with Bauer in April and May.
The pair had communicated over text messages and social media for the next three weeks, discussing baseball and her new job.
Some of the conversations were of “a sexual nature.”
What has Trevor Bauer been accused of?
Trevor Bauer has been accused of sexual assault, after he allegedly choked and punched Mrs Hill during sexual intercourse.
Hill claims that both the sexual encounters turned violent as she specifically alleged that Bauer punched her in the face, vagina, and buttocks.
Hill was later hospitalized for her injuries.
In the first encounter, the woman reportedly drove from San Diego to Los Angeles to meet Bauer.
Once they became intimate, the woman claims Bauer used her hair to choke her until she blacked out, The New York Post reported.
It was then that the woman claims Bauer “sexually assaulted” her by sodomizing her, according to The Post.
The pair communicated the next morning with Bauer allegedly teasing her about being sore and her informing him that she did not enjoy the time together, according to the report.
However, Hill appeared to return to Bauer for a second encounter where he allegedly choked her again until she blacked out.
During this second time together the woman accused the pitcher of punching her several times in the head.
“After punching me several times, he then flipped me back onto my stomach and began choking me with hair,” she said in The Athletic report.
“I lost consciousness again.”
The experience reportedly left the woman in a state of shaking and sobbing – with Bauer allegedly trying to inform her she was safe, the woman reportedly claimed in her declaration, according to the Post.
It goes on to add that it was during their second and final time together that the woman visited an emergency room and claims to have been diagnosed with a head injury and assault by manual strangulation.
The declaration, Hill issued said: “I agreed to have consensual sex; however, I did not agree or consent to what he did next.
“I did not agree to be sexually assaulted.”
What did the text messages say?
On Wednesday June 30, 2021, a petition was released that included photographs of injuries Hill allegedly suffered during sex with Bauer, such as black eyes and scratches to her face.
It also included text messages between Hill and Bauer, in which he expresses concern for her injuries.
Hill initially says, “They said the bruises/swelling on my face and jaw will be gone in about 1 week.
“And then for the head symptoms I’m not sure, probably a week ish too.
She then added that the symptoms had been making her want to “sleep a lot” and then she just wanted it “all to go away.”
Trevor responded with concern saying that: “I feel so bad that this happened. Wish I could be there with you through it.”
The woman appeared appreciative of his remorse saying “just grateful that you are showing that you care.”
The NBL player concluded: “I do, I absolutely do. Never want to see you hurting.”
Since the incidents, Bauer has vowed that the two encounters in April and again in May were agreed to by both parties.
"Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the accuser] beginning in April 2021,” Bauer's attorney Jon Fetterolf said after the accusations were first exposed and called them “fraudulent.”
The Dodgers, said they contacted MLB, to “handle the matter,” adding they take “any allegations of this nature seriously.”
