Brown players in sex assault probe back on campus


The Associated Press

Brown University officials say two players on the Ivy League school's football team last year who were investigated in connection with an alleged sexual assault have returned to campus full time, and one of them remains on the football team.

Brown spokesman Marisa Quinn told The Providence Journal ( ) that a third football player who was part of the police investigation is no longer enrolled at the school.

An 18-year-old Providence College freshman told police that she believed she was drugged at a bar last November and sexually assaulted. She said she woke up in a dorm room at Brown.

A Providence County grand jury declined to indict two players last month. A third player who remains on the team wasn't part of the case presented to the grand jury.
