A Texas woman, who identifies herself only as Jane Doe, is suing Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus over allegations that he sexually assaulted her and exposed her to a sexually transmitted disease, Chris Parenteau of News4Jax reports.

According to a copy of a civil complaint filed July 6 in Duval County, the unidentified woman accuses Dareus, 28, of having sex with her while she was unconscious and without disclosing what she believes was herpes. The lawsuit seeks a jury trial and damages in excess of $15,000.

News4Jax spoke with Dareus' attorney, Steve Weizenecker, who said he needed to speak with his client before issuing a statement on the allegations.

The complaint states Dareus and his accuser went on a date in Houston April 7 that ended with them spending the night together at a hotel. It states that when the woman woke the next day, she could not recall what happened the night before, but Dareus told her they had sex.

The complaint goes on to say that Dareus saw the woman the following two days and the pair had sex on multiple occasions. Later the same week, the complaint argues, the woman came down with symptoms and went to see a doctor, who diagnosed her with herpes.

In the complaint, the woman’s attorneys accuse Dareus of having unprotected sex with their client "while she was unconscious and therefore without her consent." They allege he later had consensual sex with her "without informing her that he was carrying a sexually transmitted disease."
