Text messages between a suspected rapist and his friend were read in court Thursday.
23-year-old David Ryan Watson, a former Texas Tech student, is on trial for sexual assault.

The accuser testified that the defendant and his friend, Michael Gehbert, used a sex tape to intimidate her.  An investigator testified that text messages between Watson and Gehbert indicate they conspired to intimidate the accuser days before she says she was raped.

According to the investigator, one text sent by Watson read quote "the package was mailed, and the plan is in motion."
Prosecutors will continue to present evidence Friday.
