How can universities prevent student-athletes from
committing sexual assault or rape? Does the revenue-producing and
spectator-driven nature of D-I athletics place significant pressure on legal
counsel, athletic directors, and/or coaches to cover up misconduct by
student-athletes who participate in sports such as football and basketball?
Significant media attention has focused on former Florida State quarterback
Jameis Winston, who was accused of sexual assault. Winston was not criminally
prosecuted, and a student conduct hearing determined there was inconclusive
evidence Winston was guilty of rape or sexual misconduct, but OCR is currently
investigating whether the university responded appropriately when it became
aware of the allegations. The alleged victim has also filed a civil lawsuit
against Winston (see Kinsman v. Winston, 6:15-cv00696-ACC-GJK (Mid. Dist.
Florida)). What are the difficulties in successfully prosecuting successful
athletes? Are personal liability lawsuits the only way to achieve justice in
these situations?
