    College Student Was Expelled for Rape After Girlfriend Said He Did Nothing Wrong

    “it really hit me after the second meeting I had with the Title IX officer”

    Reason recently interviewed a college student who was expelled even though his girlfriend said he was innocent.

    Robby Soave has the details:

    Interview: This Male Student Was Expelled for Raping His Girlfriend Even Though She Said He Did Nothing Wrong

    There was one moment during Colorado State University-Pueblo’s investigation into sophomore Grant Neal—an athlete accused, and eventually expelled, for sexually assaulting his girlfriend—that made Neal realized he was about to be railroaded.

    Neal’s girlfriend, Jane Doe, never accused him of wrongdoing, and famously stated, “I’m fine and I wasn’t raped.” But CSU-Pueblo initiated an inquiry into their forbidden relationship, which violated an informal rule about physical trainers dating athletes. The university prohibited them from contacting one another during the course of the investigation, but Doe paid little heed to the no-contact order and sent Neal several supportive messages.

    Neal, though, was worried her messages could get him in even more trouble, so he promptly informed Roosevelt Wilson, the university official charged with investigating the matter under Title IX—the federal state prohibiting sex-based inequality at institutions of higher education.

    “it really hit me after the second meeting I had with the Title IX officer, Roosevelt Wilson,” Neal recalled during an interview with Reason.

    Neal asked Wilson what he should do about the fact that Doe was still texting him.

    “I said, well, she’s snapchatted me, what do you want me to do? He told me to open [the snapchat messages] and take a screenshot and send them to him, so I did that,” he said.

    This turned out to be bad advice.

    This is just frightening. Situations like this are the reason when I chose to go back to school last year I decided to do so in a way that had me spending the least amount of time on campus possible. If I have to go onto campus I go do what I have to do and then get the hell out. Most of my classes will be completed through home based internet, until I have no choice.
