(iWIDK By Alex Dorian) – This just doesn’t seem right.
Landen Gambill, a sophomore at the University of South Carolina, is facing expulsion after a student-run Honor Court claimed that she created an “intimidating environment” for her ex-boyfriend, who allegedly raped her.
After Gambill spoke out about the harrowing incident (without divulging her attacker’s name), her ex-boyfriend, with the help of the Assistant Dean, filed a formal complaint against her.
According to WRAL, Gambill had informed the University of her attack and was immediately directed towards the Honor Court, whose members only “asked victim-blaming questions.”
Gambill filed a federal complaint to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. They’re still reviewing the case.
This is just one out of many incidents where a University has attempted to silence a sexual assault case. One would think they’d be doing everything they could to help the victim.
