Former Ivy League Fraternity President Pleads Guilty To Sexual Assault

Posted by


A former Cornell fraternity president pleaded guilty to reduced charges on Tuesday a year after being accused of trying to rape a female student at an on-campus party.

Wolfgang Ballinger from Ghent, New York, admitted forcibly touching the girl at a party at the Psi Upsilon fraternity house in the university’s campus in Ithaca last year.

The 22-year-old was originally accused of three felony sexual abuse charges but had them reduced to the misdemeanor count in a plea deal.

He faces up to a year in prison and will be sentenced at the end of March, The New York Post reported.

Ballinger was the president of Psi Upsilon when he led the girl to a bedroom at a frat party and tried to force himself upon her.

She told police he tried to force her to perform oral sex, that he sexually abused her with his hands and tried to force intercourse despite her protests.
