    UConn Had 85 Reported Sex Assaults in 2014

    A new report for state lawmakers shows there were 85 sexual assault complaints from members of the UConn community in 2014, and seven students were expelled for committing sexual assault.

    The report, posted online Thursday, is more comprehensive then the federal data the school released last week that showed 43 reported rapes on campus in 2014.

    The state report includes reports of sexual assaults committed both on and off campus and sexual assaults that were reported in 2014, but occurred in previous years.

    According to the report, 59 of the sexual assaults occurred during 2014 and 46 were allegedly committed by members of the UConn community. Twenty-four victims chose not to participate in the university disciplinary process.

    Similar reports are expected in the coming days from every college and university in the state.
