15 Colby students cited in investigation for sexual misconduct


WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Colby College says an investigation into an incident involving sexual misconduct in November has led to more than a dozen students being suspended or withdrawing altogether from the college.

Colby College says 15 students were cited for a range of violations of student policy including sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and lying to college officials.

Michael Kiser, vice president for communications, tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that cases against 14 of the students have been adjudicated, and one remaining case is pending. He says “a couple” of students withdrew, and the others were given suspensions of varying lengths.

WABI-TV in Bangor says there are reports that football players were involved. The station says the football coach resigned after the incident came to light.
