An alleged sexual misconduct in Juda Hall was reported to the campus police on Oct. 16.
The crime was reported to have happened a week earlier, between the hours of 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. of Oct. 9 and lists one female victim and one male and one female witness.
The report cites Missouri Statute 566.093 which states that “A person commits the offense of sexual misconduct in the first degree if such person: (1) Exposes his or her genitals under circumstances in which he or she knows that his or her conduct is likely to cause affront or alarm; (2) Has sexual contact in the presence of a third person or persons under circumstances in which he or she knows that such conduct is likely to cause affront or alarm; or (3) Has sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse in a public place in the presence of a third person.”
The report also includes the crime description “SEXUAL ASSAULT – DRUG-INDUCED – Conspiracy.”
The names of the victim and witnesses were redacted in the report. In addition, it is the policy of the Griffon news to not identify victims of sexual assault.
The report does not list a suspect, but it does include the phrase “1st offense.” This is an important distinction because a first offense of such a crime is classified as a Class B misdemeanor. Anyone previously convicted of a sex crime would be charged with a class A misdemeanor.
