‘Show ’em a good time’: New lawsuit against Baylor alleges 52 rapes in four years

Published

on

A former student of Baylor University on Friday filed a lawsuit against the school alleging Title IX violations and negligence, the Dallas Morning News reports. The lawsuit also claims the university hasn’t improved since the 2015 conviction of former Baylor football player Sam Ukwuachu, which revealed an entrenched culture of sexual assault at the Baptist school.

The lawsuit, filed by a woman identified as Elizabeth Doe, alleges there were 52 “acts of rape” committed by Baylor football player from 2011 to 2014. Doe says she was gang-raped by players Tre’Von Armstead and Shamycheal Chatman on April 18, 2013. According to Dow, the school did not move to investigate or discipline the players, instead offering to “pay for her education in exchange for a non-disclosure agreement.”

According the lawsuit, Baylor fosters an environment that promotes sexual assault and a “show ‘em a good time” policy used to lure football players. In one instance, assistant coach Kendall Briles asked a potential recruit if he likes “white women” because “we have a lot of them at Baylor and they love football players.”

Last May, former Baylor President Kenneth Star (of the Monica Lewinsky scandal fame) was ousted after an investigation revealed his administration’s “fundamental failure” to handle sexual assault accusations.

The move came after an independent law firm reviewed Star’s administration at the request of the Baylor Board of Regents. That report, compiled by Pepper Hamilton law firm, found that administration officials, “directly discouraged some complainants from reporting or participating in student conduct processes and in one instance constituted retaliation against a complainant for reporting sexual assault.”
