Things just got worse for the three N.C. State students accused of sexual assault at a July party on campus.
Even if the students are cleared of any criminal charges, they could still face penalties from the university. They could even be expelled, according to the News & Observer.
Three female students told police they were sexually assaulted at a party at Timber Hall in Wolf Village in late July, according to police reports. You can read more about that here.
Campus police are still investigating the sexual assaults. N.C. State chancellor Randy Woodson said this week that the university is also investigating the assaults separately as a Title IX violation. If the university finds that the accused students discriminated against or harassed the female students, the accused students could face punishment from the university.
