New Details on Sex Assaults at Baylor

October 31, 2016

Trustees of Baylor University are releasing new details about what an outside investigation found about sex assaults that were ignored by athletic administrators, The Wall Street Journal reported. The scandal has already led to the ouster of a football coach and a president, but some alumni have been saying that they were treated unfairly, and many are rallying behind the former football coach, Art Briles. Trustees now say that 17 women reported sexual or domestic assaults involving 19 players, including four alleged gang rapes, since 2011. In one case, board members say, Briles knew about an alleged assault and didn't report it to anyone. A lawyer for Briles denied wrongdoing and said that the university was violating a nondisparagement agreement it made with Briles.
