It only took a few hours for a Nashville jury to convict two former football players accused of raping an unconscious Vanderbilt student in a sickening attack captured on a cell phone video.

Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey were both charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery after university officials discovered surveillance camera footage of the men dragging an unconscious woman into a dorm room.

But until she saw cell phone video of the attack, the woman testified, she believed she had just passed out drunk and even tried to protect Vandenburg.

She testified last week that Vandenburg—her boyfriend at the time—told her the next morning that he'd taken care of her after she got too drunk and threw up.

But instead, the prosecution established, Vandenburg actually spent the evening encouraging his friends to rape her and allowed Batey to urinate on her body afterwards, prosecutors said.

It took "just a few hours" for the jury to find both men guilty on all counts, ABC reports. Two other players, Brandon Banks and Jaborian McKenzie, are still awaiting trial.
