On Tuesday, a female student at the University of North Carolina, Delaney Robinson, released a powerful and chilling statement detailing an alleged sexual assault on campus. Robinson wrote the statement, saying she was raped by a Tar Heels football player last winter.
Robinson, along with her attorney and father, released statements that were shared by Jeremy Vernon of The Daily Tar Heel.
Robinson came forward after saying “the university has done nothing,” despite her coming forward with details and claims. Robinson cooperated with university officials and the Title IX office.
In the statement, Robinson details when she became angered, after she heard recorded conversations with police and the player in question laughing while discussing the night, before he was told, “don’t sweat it, just keep living your life and playing football.”
