Report: Former Nebraska football players accused of sexual assault expelled, banned from campus
Two former Nebraska football players who have been accused of sexual assault have been expelled from the university and are permanently banned from stepping on campus, according to a report.
ESPN has reported that Andre Hunt and Katerian LeGrone have both been expelled from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and are barred from returning to campus. Both are accused of first-degree sexual assault. They had previously received a suspension from the school for 2.5 years.
Both Hunt and LeGrone have been charged with first-degree sexual assault after a 19-year-old woman alleged that she was raped at an apartment the two shared. Lawyers for the former Huskers say that the acts were consensual.
The report from ESPN states that Nebraska found that Hunt and LeGrone forced the woman to have intercourse without her consent.
Nebraska indefinitely suspended both players in late August and they entered the NCAA transfer portal.
