Lawsuit contends Baylor failed to act on sex assault claims

A woman has filed a federal lawsuit against Baylor Univ contending that the largest Baptist school in the country was "deliberately indifferent" to sexual assault allegations against a former football player.

The lawsuit alleges that Baylor failed to act against Tevin Elliott despite receiving six complaints from women claiming he assaulted them.

The suit was filed by Jasmin Hernandez of Orange County, California, whom Elliott was convicted of sexually assaulting in two thousand-fourteenth. He'south serving a 20-year sentence.

Hernandez'south attorney says Hernandez wants to speak publicly to draw attention to the case. The Associated Press generally doesn't identify sexual assault victims.

Among Hernandez'south allegations are that players were recruited without regard to the damage they might cause others.

Spokeswomen for the TX school didn't immediately reply to requests for comment.
