UNC chancellor asks honor court to suspend charges
RALEIGH (AP) — The chancellor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is asking the school’s student-led honor system to suspend proceedings against a student charged with intimidating the man whom she accused of sexual assault.
Chancellor Holden Thorp said Tuesday the university has asked the student attorney general to suspend the honor court proceedings. The attorney for sophomore Landen Gambill said Monday he filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education, alleging the school is retaliating against her.
Attorney Clay Turner also asked Thorp to dismiss the charges.
Gambill is accused of creating an intimidating environment for the man she says raped her. A university hearings board earlier cleared him of sexual assault charges but found him guilty of harassing her. He faces no criminal charges.
