2 expelled from Md. school over sex assault allegations

BALTIMORE (AP) – School officials say two University of Maryland-Baltimore County students have been expelled following an investigation into allegations that a female student was gang-raped on campus.

The investigation was prompted by a complaint from a female student that she was gang-raped by four male students in a dorm room, but was so drunk she couldn’t remember what happened.

The students admitted to having sex with the female student, but maintained that it was consensual.

The Baltimore County Police Department determined there was not sufficient evidence that a crime occurred to charge the accused students. But after the school completed its investigation, university officials concluded that two students violated the code of conduct.

UMBC released a statement Thursday confirming that school disciplinary proceedings led to the expulsion of two students.
