Suspended Huskers now facing criminal charges

Posted Dec 11, 2019 1:06 PM

Last week a story broke that Red Shirt Freshman Katerian LeGrone and Andre Hunt would be facing up to 2 1/2 years suspension from the University. 

Now the two have been arrested and are facing felony charges in connection with the report of a sexual assault. 

LeGrone was taken in on a charge of first degree sexual assault while Hunt was charged with first degree aiding and abetting sexual assault according to Lincoln police. 

The charges stem from an August 25th incident at an off-campus apartment. An unnamed female student joined both men in the apartment before reporting a rape that same evening. 

The University was conducting its own investigation in which it determined that enough evidence existed in support of the allegations that Hunt touched and forced the woman to have oral sex before forcing her to have sex with both men. The report goes on to state that the woman provided text messages she sent to others immediately after the actions. The text messages allege that she had been raped. 

The players only have a few days left to appeal the university decision to suspend them for the 2 1/2 years, the length the female in the report has left in her studies.
