LAWRENCE — A woman who is suing the University of Kansas for how it handled her sexual assault allegations is joining a separate lawsuit that accuses the school of misleading the public about the safety of its campus housing.
Sarah McClure said in a video released Thursday that KU did nothing for months after she was sexually assaulted by a KU football player last August. Her attorney says McClure joined a lawsuit filed by the parents of another woman who says she was raped by the same football player.
McClure went to police, though the player was never charged. He was later expelled by the university office that investigates sexual assault allegations.
The AP generally doesn’t identify victims of alleged sexual assault, but McClure says she wants her name used.
