NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A woman who was raped on Vanderbilt University's campus has taken the witness stand for a third time, testifying about learning that a man she trusted and three other former football players were accused of assaulting her while she was unconscious.

Victims rights advocates have said she is being traumatized by being forced to testify repeatedly at trials.

The former Vanderbilt student has said she has no memory of the June 2013 incident, but she has identified herself in graphic photos that police say were recovered from the cell phones of the former players.

She testified Friday in the retrial of Brandon Vandenburg, a former player who dated the woman.

Vandenburg's defense has argued that he did not rape her and should not be held accountable for what other former players did.
