uconn sexual assault

In October 2013, a group of current and former students accused the University of Connecticut of violating Title IX by mishandling their sexual assault cases which occurred at the school between 2010 and 2013. The Department of Education’s Office For Civil Rights launched an investigation into the school and whether it failed to follow the gender equality law that provides equal opportunity and access to education.

UCONN still refuses to broadly take responsibility for its failures. But today it was announced that the school is settling with five of the students it is accused of failing. Keep reading »

uconn sexual assault

More than half a dozen current and former students filed a federal complaint against the University of Connecticut for the alleged mishandling of their sexual assault accusations.

Seven female students filed their complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, following the lead of women from Emerson College in Boston and the University of North Carolina, among others. The complaint accuses UCONN of failing to follower the Title IX gender equity law by properly handling sexual misconduct cases on campus and preventing harassment.

One former student in the complaint is Kylie Angell, who graduated in May and now works as a nurse in a Connecticut hospital. Angell reported to UCONN’s Offie of Community Standards that she was raped by a fellow student in a dorm on the Storrs campus in July 2010. At a hearing in October 2010, her assailant was found guilty of sexual misconduct, breaking and entering, possession of drugs, and providing alcohol to a minor. He was expelled, but then filed an appeal. Only two weeks had passed before her assailant was allowed back to campus, Angell said, and she was not notified at all. In fact, she didn’t know her rapist had teruned until he approached her in a dining hall and “grazed [my elbow],” she said in a press conference on Monday night. “I was then met by heckling from his friend, who shouted at me that the perpetrator ‘was back.’” Keep reading »

Rep. Ernest Hewett of Connecticut, a Democrat, was caught on audiotape making a lewd sexual comment regarding a 17-year-old girl who testified to the state legislature about her internship. The unnamed girl. who interned at the Connecticut Science Center, said the experience helped her overcome her fear of snakes:

“I am usually a very shy person, and now I am more outgoing. I was able to teach those children about certain things like snakes that we have and the turtles that we have… I want to do something toward that, working with children when I get older.”

Rep. Hewitt was heard on audiotape replying:

“If you’re bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here.”

The Most Amazing Connecticut Stereotypes In The New York Times‘ Candace Bushnell Profile

candace bushnell

No one would accuse Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell of being not-fancy. This is the woman, after all, who popularized Manolo Blahniks and finance fiancés named Mr. Big. But even I’ll admit this entire New York Times Magazine profile of Bushnell, whose book The Carrie Diaries, has just debuted as a CW drama, is “too much,” even for me, a looky-loo who likes to gawk at the lives of rich folks.

As a native Connecticut-ite, here are the most ridiculously stereotypical tidbits in the Candace Bushnell piece: Keep reading »

High School Football Coach Spanked For Giving Freshmen Access To Porn

There seems to be an influx in creepy football coaches, or at least in the public stepping forward to report them: An assistant coach at Staples High School in Westport, Connecticut is in trubs for allegedly providing freshman players with his personal username and password for a membership-only porn site. A student reported the incident to faculty members after he overheard the coach relaying the porno password to team members. The coach has since been suspended from his position and barred from any contact with team members or students. Helping young teen boys look at porn certainly does not compare in any way, shape or form to the sexual abuse that occurred at Penn State. But, still, a fully-grown male providing porn to 14-year-old boys is kinda gross, right? I mean, he knows these kids know how to use Google. [Deadspin
