Brian O’Day took the stand first this morning, Febebruary 15, as a witness in the sexual assault trial for suspended University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson and discussed talking with the alleged victim the night in question, as well as over the days that followed.

O’Day confirmed that he did text the woman for a ride from downtown after the Forester’s Ball, and that she responded about 10 minutes later. She told him that “Something had happened,” but came to pick him up after she had showered.

He said that she was visibly upset when she picked him up. The woman told him that she had been raped, but made him guess who the assailant was, telling him only that it was someone important on the football team.

O’Day said that the woman went into his home with him when they got there and that the two talked in his room about what had happened.

The two continued to text in the days that followed, a topic that defense attorney David Paoli questioned him about intently during his cross-examination of the witness. He was specifically interested in a text message that the woman sent that read “It’s going to hit him like a ton of bricks.”

O’Day said that he asked the woman if Johnson knew that she felt she had been sexually assaulted. The woman said she didn’t think he thought he had done anything wrong.

The witness also said that some of her other text messages seemed odd and that there were discrepancies.

The alleged victim’s friend Ali Bierer took the stand next. She testified that the woman has not been herself since the night of the alleged rape. She said that she is not as outgoing and that the incident has changed her.

Bierer said that she could see how people might think that the alleged victim is doing this to seek attention, but she said she did not believe that to be true. She also said that she did not think that the woman was enjoying this process in any way.
