Sexual assaults on campus
Michele Davis, a former member of a Baylor advisory board that reviewed sexual assault-response issues with community leaders, told Outside the Lines university officials have known for at least a few years of a much larger problem with sexual assaults and athletes.Davis is also the sexual assault nurse examiner for Mc Lennan County, which means she is often the first person who interviews women who come to local hospitals reporting they've been raped."Baylor has more sexual assault cases -- that we do exams on -- compared to the other schools with the same approximate population," she said, in reference to two other colleges in Waco.Mc Craw was helpful in one area, though, Kim said: She said she told Mc Craw she was having trouble preparing for her final exams, and Mc Craw offered to contact her professors to give her dispensation. Although Kim testified during Elliott's trial, the football player was not charged in connection with her assault, in part because prosecutors decided her case wasn't as strong as others; Elliott would end up accused of one assault and four rapes, facing formal charges on two of them, including one against a former member of Baylor's equestrian team.
Defensive end Sam Ukwuachu was convicted of sexual assault in August after a Baylor soccer player reported to Waco police that he'd assaulted her in October 2013. — A sports doctor accused of molesting girls while working for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University pleaded guilty Wednesday to multiple charges of sexual assault and will face at least 25 years in prison. Larry Nassar, 54, was charged with molesting seven girls, mostly under the guise of treatment at his Lansing-area home and a campus clinic. He faces similar charges in a neighboring county and lawsuits filed by more than 125 women and girls.Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman, Mc Kayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas are among the women who have publicly said they were among Nassar’s victims.Part of the law's goal is to help keep victims in school.Yet an investigation by Outside the Lines found several examples in Tanya's case, and others at Baylor, in which school officials either failed to investigate, or adequately investigate, allegations of sexual violence.
In many cases, officials did not provide support to those who reported assaults.
