Koffel Brininger Nesbitt recently represented a football player at Ohio University who was falsely accused of sexual assault.
He and the alleged victim engaged in consensual sex in the football player’s dorm room. When the alleged victim’s friends learned that she was in the football player’s room, they notified the RA who then came over to knock on the dorm room door. As our client went to go speak with the RA, the alleged victim hid behind a desk. Shortly thereafter, she left the football player’s dorm room and informed the RA and her friends that she was forced into having sex.
The police were notified, and she was transported to the nearby hospital in Athens, OH. A Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) exam was performed, which found evidence of the recent sexual intercourse. The football player was notified that the school would be conducting a Title IX investigation of campus sexual assault, and that he would be kicked off the football team and immediately expelled from the school if found guilty.
He contacted Koffel Brininger Nesbitt to represent him in his hearing, and was represented by attorney Brad Koffel. After a lengthy Title IX hearing and several days of deliberation, our client was acquitted of all charges.
