MSU BB players charged with RAPE
A lawsuit charges that three Michigan State basketball players raped a woman back in 2015 after the Final Four tournament.
Filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan Southern Division, the lawsuit claims that after the three players raped the unnamed victim, she was pressured not to report the attack by university officials., USA Today reported.


Attorney Karen Truszkowski says that the victim never reported the rape but would not comment further. “I think the complaint kind of speaks for itself,” she said.

The three players alleged to have committed the rape were also not named in the lawsuit as the case is against the purported coercion by the university, not against the players.

School officials would not comment on the filing.

The victim, an MSU student, claims that she was at Harper’s Bar when members of the Spartans basketball team arrived after midnight. The players began buying her drinks and then invited her to a party at a nearby apartment building. The woman, who at the time was a sports journalism major, also said that one of the players “lied” to her and said her roommate was also going to be at the party.



She agreed to go to the party, but upon entering the apartment, she found no party. She also then realized her roommate was not there. She alleges that one player pulled her into a bedroom and told her, “You are mine for the night.”

The filing adds that at that point the lights were turned off and several players held her down while they took turns raping her.

The victim said that she also thinks she may have been drugged as after the drink she began to feel “discombobulated.” Her state of sobriety added to her inability to fight off the rape, she claimed.

Uh... not a lawyer here but a lawsuit doesn't mean people are "charged", does it?

Doesn't law enforcement file the "charges"?

Maybe it's legit. Maybe its not.

Accused is a more accurate description since it's a civil suit.

RE: MSU BB players charged with RAPE
rape is a very serious charge and it paints you in a bad light if you question such an accusation but three basketball players could probably leave any bar with about any 10 women. i'd probably be with a basketball player if i was a college girl at a bar. unless none of that is true and i have strange notions

I'm as big a critic of MSU as you'll find, but, Mods, this thread title needs to be changed

The idea that it makes you look bad to question an accusation BUT athletes be scoring like mad anyhow so... that track leads into she wanted it, or she just regretted it the next morning type arguments.

If that's wasn't your intent then I effed up and went down the wrong path myself. So, preemptively sorry about that.

Also - don't sell yourself short. You could be with a basketball player if you really wanted to. No need to be a college girl /s

i suppose we can agree it's best not to speculate on these matters

I've never gotten the "she just felt bad the next morning argument" These are college age women who I assume have been screwing for years. It probably wouldn't have been their first hook-up situation. Are they really going to put themselves through this nightmare because they felt bad over a one night stand. I think it's far more plausible that she maybe went there with the intention of screwing one of them, and things took an ugly turn and it became as they said it would at Baylor "a team bonding exercise." Or that she went there with the intention of getting close to one of them with the intention of starting to date him when all he wanted to do was get laid, throw in some alcohol and perhaps other things, and things turned ugly. I don't profess to know what happened in that room, but I do find that latter two scenarios more plausible than the first.
