New Baylor Lawsuit Alleges 52 Rapes Were Committed By 31 Football Players In 4 Years

A new Baylor lawsuit alleges that 31 football players committed 52 rapes in a four-year period.

According to The Dallas Morning News, a Baylor University graduate has sued the school, claiming that back in 2013, she was gang raped by two football players - Tre'Von Armstead and Shamycheal Chatman. In her lawsuit, she alleges that over a four-year period, 31 Baylor football players committed 52 acts of rape - including five gang-rapes. Here's more:

"Those football players were previously named as suspects in a police report about a rape on that date, but were never charged.

The woman has sued Baylor for Title IX violations and negligence.

She says that Chatman was accused of rape once before and the university failed to intervene. In that case, the suit says, a student athletic trainer reported that Chatman raped her at his off-campus apartment, so the university moved the trainer to a female sports team and agreed to pay for her education in exchange for a non-disclosure agreement."

Former head coach Art Briles was fired this past summer after the school came under fire for its handling of a number of sexual assault allegations.
