Harvard University: Denial of Due Process for Student Acquitted of Criminal Charges

Category: Due Process
Schools: Harvard University

A Harvard graduate student was barred from continuing his studies because a fellow student accused him of sexual assault in January of 2002. The student was acquitted on all six counts of rape and assault by Middlesex Superior Court and his accuser was shown to be fabricating parts of her story at the trial. Despite this, Harvard has not readmitted him and has not dropped its own charges against him.
