The University of Oregon found three former basketball players responsible for sexual misconduct, and will remove them from campus for up to 10 years. Dominic Artis, Damyean Dotson and Brandon Austin were accused of sexually assaulting an intoxicated female undergraduate overnight from March 8 to 9 at multiple off-campus locations. The university faced criticism for allowing the men to continue playing in the March Madness tournament after receiving a report from the victim's family, as well as for not disclosing anything about the case until May when local media obtained a police report. The victim's lawyer, John Clune, told The Huffington Post on Monday that the three men were found responsible for sexual misconduct and suspended for a minimum of four years, "or longer if my client is still on campus after four years." The maximum time for the suspension is 10 years. The men were already suspended indefinitely from the men's basketball team at the school. Eugene, Oregon, prosecutors declined to pursue the case because Lane County District Attorney Alex Gardner determined there was insufficient evidence to "prove the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt."
