A UNC-Chapel Hill sophomore is expected to detail this afternoon a Valentine's Day rape she says she endured at Ram's Village, an on-campus apartment complex.
The alleged perpetrator? A UNC football player.
According to statements released by the woman's attorney, Denise Branch—statements that the victim, Delaney Robinson, her father, Stacey Robinson, and Branch will read during a 2 p.m. press conference—the case has yet to be prosecuted, despite the fact that Robinson filed a report with the university's Title IX office.
From the release:
"I did everything a rape victim is supposed to do. I reported it. I allowed the rape kit to be taken. I gave a statement. I cooperated with law enforcement and the Title IX office. But six months later the University has done nothing. I'm taking this public stand not for me, but for the other students on campus who are not protected, despite what the University tells us. I love this University. It's my home. I plan on graduating. But I expect the University to fulfill its promises to me and to all students."
According to ABC 11
, arrest warrants have been issued for Allen Artis, a junior who plays linebacker for the Tar Heels, although there is no word yet on whether or not law enforcement has gotten involved.
In any event, here are the details on today's press conference:
