DA has no plans to prosecute UAB sex case

August 31, 2001 Posted: 1:42 PM EDT (1742 GMT)

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (CNN) --
An Alabama district attorney's
office said Friday it has no
immediate plans to prosecute
anyone at a university after a
family alleged their teen-age
daughter became a sexual
"plaything" for the school's
athletes.

The parents of the girl, identified only
as "Jane Doe," filed a $40 million
lawsuit against the University of
Alabama-Birmingham on Thursday,
accusing school officials, coaches and
others of doing nothing to help their
daughter "despite this knowledge of
sexual exploitation."

The girl entered the university just before her 15th birthday as one of the
youngest freshmen in Alabama history. Under Alabama law, statutory rape is
defined as sex with someone 15 years old or younger.

Jefferson County District Attorney David Barber told CNN he had never heard
"anything about the case until yesterday," when a reporter called about the suit.

Barber called it "strange" that a civil suit would be filed before any allegations
had been brought to authorities' attention. He said a person has to file a police
report for his office to seek prosecution in a case. Police then would investigate,
and the district attorney's office would prosecute if the evidence warranted it.

He said he was not aware of the family filing a
police complaint. "I'm not aware of anything
that's come to our attention," he said.

The university also maintains that a complaint
was never filed, saying the suit is without merit
-- nothing more "than a cynical attempt to extort
money by slandering this institution and its
employees."

"While these serious allegations of misconduct
are claimed to have occurred almost a year ago,
and over a 10-month period, other than recent
demands issued through her lawyers, the plaintiff
has never offered any complaint to the
university, local medical services, police
authorities or other related security forces,
before filing this lawsuit," the university said in a
statement.
Nevertheless, UAB has launched an investigation
into the matter.

University President W. Ann Reynolds vowed
that the school ultimately would win the civil
case: "I am outraged by this spurious lawsuit,
which we will fight and are determined to win."

The suit was filed on behalf of the girl in
Jefferson County Circuit Court by Birmingham
lawyer John Whitaker of Sadler & Sullivan.

"I didn't want to file this lawsuit," Whitaker told CNN on Thursday. "But all we
got from the university was, 'Not our fault.' "

He said the university violated the girl's rights under Title IX, which says no
person should be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under,
any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.

"Knowing that sexual harassment was going on, they in effect denied her her
educational rights," Whitaker said.

UAB athletic director Herman Frazier said the allegations would prove to be
false, and he questioned the timing of the lawsuit's filing. UAB kicked off its
football season Thursday night.

"I find these charges to be outrageous; in the long run, they will prove to be
unfounded," he said.

The suit names the university's board of trustees, five administrators, head
football coach Watson Brown, the campus police chief and more than 20
student athletes, including the starting quarterback.

It seeks $20 million in compensatory damages and $20 million in punitive
damages.

According to the suit, the girl entered college just before her 15th birthday under
guarantees from the university that she would receive special treatment and
protection because of her age -- "that she would be 'watched' and that the
university would provide for all additional care and protection needed for
someone so young."

"That is to say, they were told that the
dormitories were a safe, protected
environment in which 'Jane' could live,"
the suit said.

The girl's mother allegedly told Warren
Hale, director of student housing, and
Susan McKinnon, assistant vice
president for Enrollment Management,
that should any problems arise "they
should call her and she would come to
help 'Jane,' " the lawsuit says.

"Without these assurances, neither
'Jane' nor her parents would have accepted the scholarship offer to attend UAB.
Likewise, UAB would have never had the public relations advantage of
trumpeting the fact that they had the youngest college student in the state," the
suit says.

The suit says the girl's first quarter was an academic success as she earned a
3.5 grade-point average during spring 2000.

But things spiraled out of control when she moved into Blazer Hall, a dormitory
that houses many UAB football and basketball players, according to the suit.

During the summer of that year, she had her first sexual encounters with
athletes, often after they gave her an alcoholic beverage, the suit says. It alleges
university officials knew of the drinking, but "they did nothing to stop it."

"Thereafter, the drinking and sexual abuse in campus dormitories with (student
athletes) increased at a mind-spinning rate, with none of the parental oversight
promised by the university," the suit alleges.

"'Jane' essentially became known as the 'white, 15-year-old that would have sex
with athletes.' "

The girl began drinking liquor and smoking marijuana, the suit says. It says she
then turned to cocaine, ecstasy and LSD. The suit also alleges a university
hospital employee began exchanging morphine with the girl for cocaine.

In fall 2000, the girl passed out after drinking numerous Crown Royal shots and
had to be treated for alcohol poisoning, the suit says. Her parents were never
notified, the suit alleges.

Her grades plummeted, the suit says, and she skipped classes for months and
had a 1.9 GPA in her last quarter in school, in fall 2000. "No professor or
teacher defendant ever notified her parents," the suit says.

The girl's mother learned of her daughter's problems just before Christmas
break from a man who said he was a UAB policeman, according to the suit.

"For almost half a year, 'Jane' had been repeatedly sexually abused, addicted to
drugs and alcohol, and the first contact to her parents came as a result of a call
initiated by 'Jane's' mother," the suit alleges.

The suit says the parents put the girl in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program
over the Christmas break. She never returned to UAB.

"The university's actions and inaction culminated in the withdrawal of 'Jane'
from school and an end to her dreams of completing her degree and beginning
her career before reaching 19 years of age," the suit says.

Link to article on CNN here

If I were a parent I would not trust my 15 year old daughter (or son) unsupervised with a bunch of college guys.

I am aware what my colleagues are capable of.

Well I think she was on her way to becoming a profitable crack whore

"The suit also alleges a university hospital employee began exchanging morphine with the girl for cocaine. "

She's got the business skills.

What the fuck is up with that article? It sounds so... blunt. And anyways, what the fuck did the parents expect? It's ALABAMA for fuck sake. While I'm on the topic of retarded southern states, what the FUCK is up with those dumbass citizens down there wanting to fly the Confederate flag instead of the American flag?

I live in Georgia, and I laugh everytime I see the confederate flag. Mainly two funny things I have seen concerning the rebel flag:
1) There was a billboard, and it read "RESTORE REBEL PRIDE!". You joined the club and got a free rebel flag. How redneck can people get?
2) Traffic jam caused by group of rednecks on an overpass, waving rebel flags.

I just wish the rednecks would go away. Yes, it was time to change the flag, but not to that ugly thing Georgia has now... I hate the South. Florida seems to be the only sane state in the south.

Seriously, there are reasons why people go to school at certain ages. No matter who smart kids are, I don't think they should be skipping grades or graduating early, or starting college at 14.

If they want to advance students in their work and studies, then stick all the pre-teen colege students in one school.

Damn it, LSD, coke, marijuana, alcohol...it's all part of the university experience. Isn't that why people go to university?

It can't be because of the education because there isn't any...hehe
