The survivor in a rape case in which four former Vanderbilt University football players have been criminally charged is disturbed that one of those players has been speaking on colleges campuses about sexual assault, the woman’s attorney said Saturday.
Alex Little, a lawyer representing the survivor, said it is “shocking and disturbing” that multiple campuses have invited Brandon E. Banks to speak. Mr. Banks has been charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. He has pleaded not guilty.
By having Mr. Banks on their campuses and recommending the presentation to other colleges, Mr. Little said in a written statement, university officials are evading the serious nature of the alleged crime.
“We are deeply distressed that these coaches and administrators treat gang rape as a mistake that should be avoided rather than the violent crime it is,” Mr. Little wrote. “This attitude is even more troubling, given that Mr. Banks has yet to accept responsibility for his actions.”
