Haskell Indian Nations University Employee Sues Over School’s Treatment of Rape VictimOctober 11, 2016 |
by Associated Press
LAWRENCE, Kan. ― A Haskell Indian Nations University employee alleges in a lawsuit that she was demoted from her job as a student counselor after trying to help a student who said she was raped.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Angelina Adams sued Monday in Douglas County District Court.
Adams says Haskell leaders improperly expelled the female student after she became involved in an altercation with a male Haskell student in March. Adams protested and said the female student hadn’t been given due process.
The female student said she was a 19-year-old freshman when she was raped last November in a university dorm. Both of her accused attackers also were expelled, and their trials ended in hung juries.
Haskell spokesman Stephen Prue didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.Semantic Tags: Diversity • Education • Haskell Indian Nations University • Law • Public Colleges & Universities • Sexual Assault • Students
