A Guy Blacks Out and is Raped Then Accused of Rape

A guy was unconcious and a girl unzipped his pants and gave him a blowjob. She later decided to accuse him of sexual assault

his article first appeared on Reason:

Amherst College expelled a male student who was accused of sexually assaulting a female student while he was blacked out. Again, while he was blacked out. The woman he allegedly assaulted was fully lucid.

How did that happen? It didn’t. The evidence overwhelmingly suggests that the male student did nothing wrong. If anyone committed sexual assault during their encounter, it was in fact the female student.

The male student, “John Doe,” is suing Amherst. KC Johnson parsed his lawsuit here.

    False Accusations of Sexual Assault Should Be a Crime

    This is one of the few cases where we have an actually good idea of what happened the night in question. Doe accompanied the accuser (who was Doe’s girlfriend’s roommate) to her dorm room. The accuser performed oral sex on a blacked out Doe (Johnson notes that even the Amherst hearing found Doe’s account of being blacked out “credible”). Doe leaves. The accuser then texted two people: First, a male student she had a crush on — whom she invited over after a heavily flirtatious exchange earlier in the evening. Then, a female friend.
    The accuser said during her hearing that she only texted one friend to help her handle the assault as she felt “very alone and confused.” But her texts with her female friend give no indication of an assault. Rather, the accuser texted her friend “Ohmygod I jus did something so fuckig stupid” [sic throughout]. She then proceeded to fret that she had done something wrong and her roommate would never talk to her again, because “it’s pretty obvi I wasn’t an innocent bystander.”
    She also complained that the other man, who had come over after the alleged assault, had taken until 5 in the morning to finally have sex with her.
    The accuser found herself friendless after the encounter, when her roommate discovered what she had done.
    Between the encounter with Doe and the accusation — nearly two years later — the accuser developed new friends. And as it happens, these new friends were all “victims’ advocates.”
