Inside a Teton County courtroom, 20-year-old Claire Andrews came face to face with the man she says raped her.

“That was the first time I’d seen him in almost three years,” Andrews told the News&Guide after the sentencing. “Being in the same room ... I just started crying.”
With a courtroom packed with her family and friends Andrews cried and hugged her loved ones after 9th District Judge Timothy Day sentenced Jamison David Daniel, 20, to five years of supervised probation.
“At least with a probation sentence he’s going to have to realize what he’s done and think about his actions,” Andrews said.
It’s not jail, which Andrews said she would have preferred, but it’s still a guilty plea.
“I haven’t had any closure until now,” she said. “It’s been a rough road, but now I’m going to be moving on.”
Daniel was sentenced after pleading guilty in August to third-degree sex assault.
Daniel, a Jackson Hole native and a current Washington resident, didn’t make a statement in court. His attorney, Dick Mulligan, spoke on his behalf until Judge Timothy Day stopped him.
“Ms. Andrews was overheard at the party saying she wanted to have sex that evening no matter who it was,” Mulligan told the court.
“I don’t know if that’s relevant,” Day said. “I’d prefer you move on.”
The assault took place Dec. 31, 2014, or Jan. 1, 2015, at a New Year’s Eve party in Rafter J, police said.
“Someone I trusted violated me and denied it 47 times,” Andrews said.
According to court records, Daniel and Andrews were at the party with several other people.
“After that night my life changed,” Andrews told the court, reading from her written statement.
Andrews had too much to drink and passed out in a guest room at the host’s house, police said.
“When I see someone drunk and passed out my first instinct is to take care of them,” Andrews said. “For Jamison Daniel his instinct was to have sex with the person who was drunk and passed out. That person was me.”
Andrews reported the incident on Jan. 6, 2015, after breaking the news to her family.
“I was afraid to tell people because I had heard what the justice system does to girls like me,” she said.
Investigators collected pants she put on the day after the rape as evidence because the outfit she wore to the party had already been washed, a police affidavit states.
Andrews went off to college soon after the assault, despite wanting to take a year off.
“I cried every day and felt terribly for my roommate and friends who had to take care of me,” she said. “Then the DNA results came back and there was a match. I cried tears of joy.”
When Daniel, 17 at the time of the crime, was questioned by police he denied having sex with Andrews. He told them he only took her a glass of water, but later changed his story.
“Despite lying to detectives and friends,” Mulligan told the court, “he admitted to sexual contact.”
David Daniel, Jamison’s father, said his son and Andrews had consensual sex that night.
“We feel we are the victims of a mob society so hell-bent on a rape prosecution that no matter the facts, must happen,” David Daniel wrote in a statement that he had planned to read in court until Judge Day stopped him.
In a copy of the statement obtained by the News&Guide, the elder Daniel said Andrews changed her story.
“We’ve never had a chance to tell Jamison’s side until now,” Daniel wrote. “This is in no way to shame Ms. Andrews but as a father how can I sit back silently and not present facts provided in affidavits and statements provided by other people who attended the party?”
Daniel claims witnesses said Andrews was soliciting sex at the party.
“This is by no means to embarrass or humiliate Ms. Andrews, but rape is a very serious accusation, and I feel that both sides of the story should be told,” Daniel said. “Ms. Andrews was not unconscious and knew fully what they were doing.”
‘Full of wonder’
In the statement Daniel described his son as “shy, kind and full of wonder.”
“Jamison never got in trouble in school,” his dad said. “He’s never had a speeding or even parking ticket.”
Andrews said she was unconscious when Daniel pulled her dress down and had sex with her. Her family agreed to the plea deal because they didn’t want to delay justice further with a jury trial, she said.
“I’m not going to be the last girl to go through this,” Andrews said. “I wish I was. My heart hurts so bad for them. The justice system drags you through the mud repeatedly, and it’s really painful, but just the fact that I might be helping this not happen to one more girl makes it worth it.”
Andrews and her mother, Barbara, hope telling the story of their tragedy will help other victims.
“Claire is my hero,” Barbara Andrews said. “She has been wounded, but she is not broken. I pray that other women will come forward to begin healing.”
Because Daniel is young and lacks a criminal history, a presentence investigation recommended supervised probation.
“The plea agreement I’m being asked to accept, from one point of view, could look like it’s way too lenient,” Judge Day said. “It doesn’t call for incarceration and gives Mr. Daniel the opportunity to avoid a felony conviction.”
A low risk to reoffend
Day said the presentence investigation concluded Daniel was at a low risk to reoffend. Mulligan called it an isolated incident.
“If there were miscalculations and he’s unable to live up to his plea agreement there will be heavy consequences for him,” Day said.
Judge Day instructed Daniel to follow court orders and do some soul searching. He also instructed him to complete education in the “yes means yes initiative.”
“I think after three long, difficult years it is a fair and just sentence for everybody involved,” Teton County Deputy Prosecutor Becket Hinckley said.
Daniel made an Alford plea, a guilty plea by a defendant who proclaims he is innocent. If he completes five years of probation without violation, a felony conviction won’t appear on his record. He has the right to appeal his conviction within 30 days of the filing of the sentence.

TEEN RAPISTS 42 15 agosto 2017

A 19-year-old charged last year with raping two women he met online is now accused of assaulting eight others, prosecutors announced.
A grand jury handed down a 24-count indictment against Jim G. Persey alleging a series of sexual assaults beginning in June 2014 — when Persey was 16 — and ending with his arrest in April 2016, when a 20-year-old woman told police Persey raped her after they met through the dating app MeetMe.
After the Anchorage Police Department announced Persey‘s arrest on April 20, 2016, eight more women came forward to report that they‘d been assaulted by Persey, according to a statement from the Alaska Department of Law.
“The Special Victims Unit investigated these reports over the next several months, which led to this week‘s indictments,” the statement said.
Anchorage District Attorney Clint Campion said in an email that the other women — most of whom came forward shortly after Persey‘s arrest — were all peers of his from school.
An affidavit filed by police detective Chris Thomas said the 20-year-old woman came to APD on April 14, 2016, to report she had been sexually assaulted.

The woman said her encounter with Persey that day began as consensual sex they arranged through MeetMe but soon turned violent, as he struck her in the face, choked her until she blacked out and “presented a folding knife to her and threatened to stab her,” according to the affidavit.
As Thomas was investigating the April 14 case, he learned of another suspected sexual assault involving Persey. In that case, a woman met Persey online in early January and told investigators they had also been engaged in a consensual relationship, which became violent when he raped her at his house in late March, the affidavit said.
Persey was originally charged with nine counts of assault and sexual assault in those cases.
Grand jury indictment included 13 counts of first-degree sexual assault, each of which could carry a 99-year sentence, the Department of Law said.
Persey is being charged as an adult for all of the crimes in the indictment, though many are alleged to have taken place before he turned 18.
“…(I)f we have evidence to support that a 16 or 17 year old committed certain offenses, usually the most serious criminal offenses, we are required by Alaska‘s statutes to charge the offender as an adult,” Campion wrote.
Persey was being held on $100,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court on the new charges.
Authorities believe there may be other victims and are asking anyone with information about the case to Thomas at or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at or by calling 907-561-STOP.

A Pulaski County man has been sentenced to 20 years in Tennessee after pleading guilty to four counts related to the molestation of two girls from the town of Oneida.
WBNT Radio out of Scott County, Tennessee, reports that Jonathan Wesley Bolin, 22, of Burnside, pleaded guilty to four counts of aggravated sexual battery — two for each victim — in Scott County Criminal Court.
He had been initially indicted in October 2016 on a total of 34 counts stemming from allegations of inappropriate sexual contact with two girls between June 2013 (when the younger victim was nine) and August 2016, when the abuse was reported to authorities. Those charges included 11 counts of child rape, five counts of sexual battery, nine counts of solicitation of a minor, four counts of trafficking for commercial sex acts, three counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child and two counts of attempted aggravated sexual battery.
In accordance with the plea agreement, Bolin was sentenced to 10 years for each of the four counts though two of counts will be served currently with the others. He will also be required to register as a sex offender

NORMAL – Normal Police have arrested a local man and a juvenile boy for trying to sexually assault a young woman in a car, then raping her at a hotel in early November.
Prosecutors filed sexual assault charges against Adrian Damian-Moya, 19, of Bloomington.
The victim attended a party at the Motel 6 in North Normal, then went with party-goers to a house.
Authorities say Damian-Moya, another man, and two juveniles pushed the woman into a car, and took her back to the motel, where they raped her.
Police say two other suspects have not been arrested.
A judge set bond for Damian-Moya at $150,000, meaning that he has to post $15,000 to be released from jail before his trial.

CENTERTON (KFSM) — A Centerton man is accused of raping a 14-year-old girl in November, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Centerton police on Friday (Dec. 29) arrested John Christopher White, 19, in connection with sexual indecency with a child, a Class D felony.
The victim said White raped her after he made her drink several beers. During the rape, she said White threw her around on the floor, causing bruises to her legs and knees.
Afterwards she said White made her take a walk to “sober her up” before walking her home, according to the affidavit.
The victim also said she was scared of White, telling police that White talked about killing people and stabbing her. She added that White spoke of raping his future daughter, according to the affidavit.
White is free on a $10,000 bond. He has a hearing set for Feb. 5 in Benton County Circuit Court.
In Arkansas, Class D felonies are punishable by up to six years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.

A Warren teenager accused of sexually assaulting a fellow student inside a local high school faces another sex-related charge.
The charge -- gross indecency between a male and female -- is a misdemeanor filed against 14-year-old Khywani Jamal Tolbert as a juvenile. The incident occurred on or about Nov. 13, according to Macomb County Juvenile Court records, and officials said an unidentified teenage girl consented to participate in the sexual conduct.
A pretrial hearing for Tolbert is scheduled to be held in front of a Juvenile Court referee.
He faces much more severe charges for a separate incident that police and prosecutors have described as a heinous and vicious sexual assault. Authorities allege Tolbert, who is a ninth-grader at Lincoln High School, raped a girl in a corridor of the school on Nov. 28. Officials said the teen also committed two other acts of sexual penetration using force against the female schoolmate.
The incident was captured on school security camera video.
The girl tried for several minutes to fend off her attacker, officials said.
The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office charged Tolbert as an adult with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. That offense is punishable by up to life in prison upon conviction. He also faces one count of unlawful imprisonment.
“As far as I’m concerned, I feel the prosecutor made the right decision to charge him as an adult. How she fought him off, (it is) so disheartening to see the suffering she went through on that video. Veteran detectives who saw it were just taken aback … how violent and vicious he was in violating her,” Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said.
“She fought him off for several, several minutes. She’s going to be scarred, at least emotionally, for life. She didn’t deserve to be treated like this by a monster,” he said.
At his arraignment for rape charges Dec. 5, Tolbert was ordered by 37th District Judge John Chmura to be held in the Macomb County Juvenile Justice Center without release before trial. That was the same day a Macomb County assistant prosecutor said a previous incident involving Tolbert and a different female student had occurred at the school.
Juvenile Court records show Tolbert has been accused of several other offenses in the past six months. In each instance, the Prosecutor’s Office authorized charges against him as a juvenile.
Last July, when he was age 13, he was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon for an incident in which he used a brick to assault a male. In August, he was charged with malicious destruction of a building, with damage of less than $1,000, for an incident at a home down the block from his home on Jewett Avenue. About five weeks later, he was accused of stealing Ray Ban sunglasses from a man in an incident that officials said occurred in Dearborn and violating that city’s curfew ordinance.
At one point, a juvenile court official noted Tolbert was doing well at home, school and in the community, and that he had continued therapy while having no violations of terms of wearing a GPS tether.
Court records show Tolbert was released from the Juvenile Justice Center, located in Mount Clemens, on Oct. 12.
Six days later, his mother reported her son was truant by leaving home at 2 a.m. Oct. 18 and that he returned shortly before 5 a.m. The teen subsequently was accused of violating conditions of his bond and his GPS tether by leaving home without permission.
At a probation violation hearing Oct. 19, a Juvenile Court official determined Tolbert had not been rehabilitated by the juvenile justice system, court records show.
“The youth continues to make poor decisions which place himself and others at a risk of harm. His parent is unable to control his behavior,” Referee Karen Transit said in a court document.
In a plea agreement in Juvenile Court on Oct. 25 –- two days after he turned 14 years old -- Tolbert admitted to a charge of disturbing the peace. He also admitted he committed larceny of property valued less than $200 for the incident involving the sunglasses, and for violating curfew. In exchange, prosecutors dismissed the charge of felonious assault. Prosecutors that day also dropped the vandalism charge Tolbert faced.
Tolbert was put on probation, released from the Juvenile Justice Center on Oct. 26 and ordered to wear a GPS tether.
On one of the assessment reports of Tolbert upon entering the facility, it’s noted the teenager has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and that he is bi-polar.
Tolbert’s father, identified in the same record as Kenneth Kendrick, is in prison. According to the Michigan Department of Corrections, Kendrick is serving a sentence of 23-50 years for second-degree murder, plus two years for felony firearm possession, for a homicide in 2009. He also was sentenced in 2011 to 2-15 years behind bars for an unarmed robbery that occurred four months before the killing.

Teen charged with raping girl in Warren school faces another charge Norb Franz, The Macomb Daily 01/03/18

The 16-year-old teenager accused of killing seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur on the premises of Ryan International School will be tried as an adult, said the Juvenile Justice Board.
"This is a turning point in this case and it is historic. There will be no leniency shown to him," Sushil Tekriwal, lawyer of Pradyuman's family, told reporters.
Pradyuman's father Varun Thakur also welcomed the decision. "I thank the judiciary for the decision. We always knew that the journey is long but we will go till the end to get justice for my child and all other children who might be vulnerable," ANI quoted Thakur as saying.
The Juvenile Justice Board also rejected the bail plea of the teenager.
The board had earlier set up a committee comprising a psychologist from PGI Rohtak seeking an expert opinion in the matter. The panel had submitted its report in two envelopes.
Tekriwal had also said the report was based on behavioural, sociological and psychological aspects of the juvenile.
"We have seen the report and given our submission," he had said. According to Tekriwal, the report had said the accused should be treated as an adult and it suggested that he was an abnormal child with a hyper-aggressive streak to his personality.
An intense argument had taken place among the CBI counsel, Thakur's lawyer and the defence lawyer for three hours but eventually, the board rejected the juvenile's plea for bail on basis of the reports.
The Juvenile Justice Board had also noted that the accused was mature enough to recognise the consequences of his actions.

The accused kept her in a house where she was drugged. Later, the two accused were arrested while the juvenile surrendered in the court.

WENATCHEE — A Moses Lake man was arrested on suspicion of child rape after detectives overheard a confession to sex with a 14-year-old. The admission was made during a call from jail, where the man is being held on unrelated child-rape charges.
Detectives with the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office believe 22-year-old Alexander I. Lopez-Cantu had sex with the victim following a party in September at a remote campsite south of Wenatchee, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Nov. 29 in Chelan County Superior Court.
Lopez-Cantu was 21 at the time and the victim had recently turned 14, according to court documents. The victim spoke with investigators in November about the incident, according to the affidavit.
Lopez-Cantu in October was charged in Douglas County Superior Court with third-degree child rape in a separate case in which detectives believe he had sex with a 15-year-old girl. That case is scheduled to go to trial March 8 in Douglas County Superior Court.
While he was jailed, Chelan County detectives -- suspecting Lopez-Cantu in the 14-year-old girl’s case -- listened to a phone call in which Lopez-Cantu discussed and admitted to having sex with the 14-year-old girl.
Lopez-Cantu was arrested on suspicion of third-degree child rape. He’s being held at Chelan County Regional Justice Center.

22-Year-Old Washington Man Accused of Second Child Rape Pete O'Cain / The Wenatchee World Dec 28 2017

ROWLEY – A local man accused of raping a 15-year-old girl after getting her drunk was sentenced to at least three years in state prison after pleading guilty to four charges in Salem Superior Court. 
Eduardo DaSilva, 20, of Haverhill Street could spend as much as four and a half years in state prison. Following his release, he will be on probation for five years and must register as a sex offender, according to the Essex County District Attorney's Office. 
In all, DaSilva pleaded guilty to two counts of rape of a child, assault with intent to rape and possession of child pornography. 
Prosecutor Michael Sheehan asked Judge Timothy Feeley to sentence DaSilva to five or six years in state prison with five years of probation, according to District Attorney's Office spokesman Steven O'Connell. 
While on probation, DaSilva must have no contact with his victim, register as a sex offender, undergo sex offender evaluation and treatment, wear a GPS monitoring device, have no unsupervised contact with children and undergo a substance abuse evaluation, O'Connell added.
DaSilva obtained alcoholic beverages for the girl while at a Newbury Road residence, according to a police report. DaSilva gave her enough alcohol that she became drunk and fell asleep. At that point, he sexually assaulted her, the report said.
The girl woke up and resisted but because of her level of intoxication, she was unable to move. Earlier in the evening, the girl told DaSilva she was not interested in any kind of sexual activity with him.
Police were alerted to the crime soon after and began an investigation. Rowley Detective Matthew Ziev was able to obtain Snapchat messages that linked the victim to DaSilva, according to Ziev’s report.

A 21-YEAR-OLD man from Shurugwi has been sentenced to 17 years for raping a teenage mother. 

Makiwa Chivika of Gombingo Village in Shurugwi had pleaded guilty to rape when he appeared before Regional Magistrate Mr Morgan Nemadire. Mr Nemadire said Chivika exhibited an unthinkable act of cruelty by raping the complainant as the baby clung precariously on the back of the mother.

“You took advantage of this defenceless mother after she asked for directions to the clinic where she wanted to take her baby for routine check-ups. You failed to just give directions to a desperate mother who could not recognise the way to the clinic and chose to rape her in the presence of her baby. For this offence you are sentenced to 17 years in prison,” he said.
The agreed facts are that on December 14, the complainant left home on her way to Gundura Clinic for a routine baby check-up. While on the way, she saw Chivika who was herding cattle and asked him for directions.

The court heard that suddenly Chivika started fondling her before he attempted to trip her. The court heard that Chivika then threatened to kill the complainant’s child if she continued to wrestle him. He later raped her once before she fled from the scene. Mr Kelvin Guveya appeared for the State.

A 15-year-old boy has admitted to a sex attack on an 83-year-old grandmother that included forcing her to shower to wash the evidence away.
The attack was so viscous it left the woman severely injured and suffering trauma.
The 15-year-old, who cannot be named, pleaded guilty to sexual assault, robbery, and the bashing of the woman after breaking into her home at 5am on a Friday morning in Waikiki, an outer southern suburb of Perth.
He is alleged to have lived in the area and it’s believed the woman was asleep when he broke in on October 13 and pinned her to the floor.
Police released CCTV footage showing a hooded figure exiting the victim’s home.
Details in court and reported by WA Today reveal the brutality of the attack, in which the boy “sexually penetrated her three times during the home invasion”.
Appearing via video link from Banksia Hill Detention Centre, the boy bit his nails as charges were read in Perth Children’s Court.
According to ABC News the woman alerted neighbours after the attack.
After the footage went public the teenager was located by detectives from the WA Police Sexual Assault Squad two days later.
9News reported the grandmother was robbed, raped and forced to shower by her attacker. He also stole the woman’s handbag.
The Daily Mail reports the boy was on parole at the time of the attack.
“He was just normal, quite like how he his all the time,” an older cousin said.
“He’s just in with the wrong crowd.”
The victim was rushed to hospital and was later released.
The boy was remanded in custody and will be sentenced at a later date, after a neuropsychological report is undertaken. He will also be tested for foetal alcohol syndrome.

State College, Centre County - For most, the Schlow Centre Region Library in State College is a safe place to learn, but police said Dylan Reeves, 19, used it to engage in sexual acts with a minor.
According to court documents, police received four separate reports from the Centre County Office of Children and Youth Services, which detailed a relationship he formed with a minor nearly four years younger than him.
Police said they found on Reeve's cell phone, nude photos exploiting the child.
Ultimately, officials said video and audio recordings at the Schlow Library show Reeves taking the juvenile into a bathroom on Dec. 12th where they had sex. 
And reeves went on to slap and burn a cigarette into the juvenile's arm. 
Police believe there were at least 3 other sexual incidents like this on other occasions. 
In response to these disturbing details, spokesperson provided WTAJ with a response to the investigation:
"We take safety seriously at Schlow and have cooperated fully with the police in their investigation. We have cameras, radios, police walk-throughs, and regular restroom inspections. We get between 500 and 1,000 visitors a day and have implemented security measures and make every effort to keep a busy public building as secure as possible," David Pencek, Communications Manager for Schlow Library said.
And they added that if you see anything out of the ordinary you should alert volunteer or staff, who are trained to handle any emergency situations.
And of course, if you see an emergency in general you should call 9-1-1. 
While police believe the sex was consensual, it's still illegal based on the juvenile's age.
Reeves is now behind bars at the Centre County Correctional Facility.
He is facing two felony charges including sexual abuse of children and criminal use of a communications facility, along with multiple misdemeanor charges.
Police said Reeves is also facing charges for providing the minor with Adderall.

( -- An 18-year-old Northampton County man will spend more than three decades in prison for a rape and other crimes he committed when a juvenile.
Frederick Baker was 16 when he raped and sodomized a 21-year-old woman in a Cape Charles park on Oct. 2, 2015.
After his arrest and incarceration in the Eastern Shore Regional Jail, Baker accumulated additional charges, including for assaults on law enforcement officers at the jail.
Circuit Judge W. Revell Lewis III sentenced Baker to a total of 74 1/2 years in prison, with 40 years suspended, meaning he will be more than 50 years old when he completes his active sentence.
He also will be required to register as a violent sex offender and will remain on indefinite supervised probation.
Baker in a plea agreement with the Commonwealth in July pleaded guilty to rape, abduction and forcible sodomy — all committed while he threatened the terrified victim with a pistol he had stolen from his grandfather.
Baker also admitted damaging and trying to escape from the Eastern Shore Regional Jail.
Lewis sentenced him to 69 years with all but 29 years suspended on the rape, sodomy and abduction charges along with related firearms charges, and to another year on the jail damage and attempted escape charges.
In a separate set of charges related to incidents during his incarceration, the judge sentenced Baker to consecutive terms of six months on each of five counts of assaulting a police officer and one year each on two counts of threatening to kill a police officer.
That added another 4 1/2 years to Baker's sentence, meaning he will serve a total of 34 1/2 years in prison.
He pleaded guilty to those crimes in March 2017.
Northampton Commonwealth's Attorney Bruce Jones asked the judge to impose the maximum sentence, noting the heinous nature of the crimes and saying Baker is a danger to society, especially to women.
Jones said he did so sorrowfully, noting, "In addition to being a perpetrator, he is a victim, as we have heard."
Still, Baker "has unambiguously proven" that he continues to be a threat to society, Jones said, noting Baker almost a year after the incident had told a doctor interviewing him for the court that he should have killed his rape victim.
Jones reviewed Baker's history of hospitalizations and other treatment, starting at age 4, for "his violent and aggressive behavior," as detailed in a pre-sentence report.
At age 9, he set fires in a home and urinated on the floor in random places, along with assaulting others without provocation in treatment facilities, Jones said.
At age 14, he tried to rape his stepmother, according to testimony and the pre-sentence report.
That resulted in a year-long stay at a mental health treatment facility in Leesburg, Virginia.
Baker was still on probation for that offense when he committed the crimes for which he is now being sentenced, Jones said.
Tidewater Detention Center, the Norfolk facility where Baker was detained after his 2015 arrest on the rape and other charges, asked to have Baker transferred to an adult facility because of his behavior — "the only time, I think, this ever happened in my career," said Jones, who has served as Northampton County's Commonwealth's Attorney for decades.
"He is profoundly dangerous ... He has no respect for women," Jones said.
Defense attorney Tucker Watson on Monday called several witnesses — including Baker's father, a mental health professional, and Baker himself — to testify about Baker's troubled childhood, which included sexual and physical abuse by his mother from an early age.
Mental health therapist Matthew Viyera, who treated Baker at the Leesburg facility, said the teen was diagnosed with various disorders, including ADHD and bipolar disorder, and had been the victim of sexual and physical abuse and of neglect.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University has agreed to pay a former student $100,000 to settle a lawsuit claiming it mishandled her report of being raped at an off-campus residence, according to federal court documents.
The university agreed to pay the woman to drop the case, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported. The university admitted no liability, and in return for the settlement, the woman agreed not to discuss it.
According to the lawsuit that alleged violations of Title IX, the federal law pertaining to sexual assault investigations, the woman told police and university investigators about the 2014 incident
A school employee who oversaw the investigation prepared a report for a student conduct board, which later determined Nathan Nkwaya, the attacker, was not responsible for sexual misconduct and could remain in school.
Nkwaya later pleaded guilty to battery and unlawful restraint in Monongalia County Circuit Court and was sentenced in July 2016 to one year in jail.
According to the lawsuit, school investigator Peggy Runyon interviewed the woman on several separate occasions and tried to discourage her from going through with a hearing that could end up in Nkwaya's expulsion.
The lawsuit said Runyon's report to the board stated the woman "consented to sexual events" and she testified to the board that the sexual acts were consensual, even though the woman said they were not.
Runyon's report and testimony to the conduct board was "not appropriate, not impartial, not equitable, not adequate and not reliable," the lawsuit said.
Three days before Nkwaya entered into a plea agreement in the criminal case, Runyon returned to the university's police department, where she had worked from 1999 until 2014 when she joined the Title IX office.
WVU spokeswoman April Kaull declined to say why Runyon left the Title IX office, saying it was a personnel matter. Kaull said Runyon now works as a crime prevention coordinator and is responsible for community relations.
