PHILADELPHIA (AP) - All charges have been dropped against a former member of Temple University's football team who was accused of rape.

Attorneys for 20-year-old Praise Martin-Oguike (oh-GWEE'-kay) said the charges were dismissed as jury selection was to begin Monday.

The woman told police Martin-Oguike assaulted her in May 2012 in his dorm room. Martin-Oguike said the encounter was consensual.

Martin-Oguike's attorney James Funt said charges were dropped after a review of the woman's text messages with her friends indicated she was not truthful about being raped.

Funt said the former Temple linebacker was victimized by the woman ``simply because he would not agree to have a romantic long-term relationship with her.''

Martin-Oguike was suspended from the team after he was charged. He now attends a New Jersey community college.
