LAWSUIT: Texas A&M Ran T9 Rape Trial While Hospitalized Male Couldn’t Defend Himself

Put on suicide watch, tried and convicted in absentia…A Texas A&M University cadet says he was suspended following sexual misconduct charges he never got to see – because he was hospitalized. A federal lawsuit claims “John Doe” was unable to “meaningfully defend himself” when Title IX investigators refused to reschedule a conduct meeting that would have revealed the specific accusations of his partner, with whom he had an open sexual relationship.“ At all times John Doe was deemed guilty” says the suit. “This extreme and severe sanction was not warranted in light of the lack of evidence.” When John was permitted access to a computer from in-patient treatment, he learned he had been found responsible on all charges: sexual contact, sexual abuse, dating violence and “Conduct Unbecoming a Cadet.” By Kayla Schierbecker
