Woman joins federal lawsuit against Baylor University

By  | 

WACO, Texas (AP) - A woman has joined a federal lawsuit against Baylor University accusing the school of doing nothing to help her and others after they reported being sexually assaulted on or near campus.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports the former Baylor student claims to have been raped by a group of football players in 2011.

She joins the lawsuit previously filed by Jasmin Hernandez, who was raped by a former player later sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The Associated Press generally doesn't identify sexual assault victims, but Hernandez has spoken publicly to draw attention to the case.

Baylor faces three federal lawsuits alleging the school violated federal Title IX anti-gender discrimination regulations.

A school spokeswoman declined to comment on the latest claim because officials had not yet reviewed the amended lawsuit.
