Purdue Football: Three Players Expelled Following Sexual Assault Investigation

The Purdue football program has expelled three players.

According to Ben Kercheval of CBS Sports, three of the four players named in a sexual assault incident last fall have been dismissed from the university following a new investigation into the matter.

No criminal charges were brought on any of the players, but Purdue’s Administrative Board decided their actions should result in their dismissal.

The attorney of the accuser issued a statement on the school’s decision.

“My clients and I appreciate Purdue’s careful review of the facts and circumstances surrounding this unfortunate incident, which led to the expulsion of these three players,” Mario Massillamany said.

“Purdue has taken the necessary steps to ensure that these players will not victimize another student, for which we are grateful.”

The police report alleged women drank wine and rum, along with smoking marijuana, before being “forced” to perform sexual acts on one player. Massillimany says the case could be reopened.
