Lawyer for Gophers' Reggie Lynch digs in over UMN sex-misconduct findings

Lawyer for Gophers' Reggie Lynch digs in over UMN sex-misconduct findings

Despite the allegations, Lynch has continued to practice with the basketball team even though he is suspended from game action.

Their decision came a day after the EOAA notified two women of findings that Lynch was responsible in their two separate sexual assault allegations from April 2016.

Pacyga said Lynch has appealed the two EOAA rulings, but he said he isn't sure whether the two hearings will be combined, though he said he thinks they should be separate.

Pacyga said that because Lynch is a popular athlete, it's hard for him to recall interactions that occurred 18 months ago, and repeatedly questioned why the accusers didn't immediately make reports.

"He had a right not to participate in this interviews no one could compel him to do it but he did it". She also said she was "appalled and traumatized" by the way he talked about the case "with no respect for me as a victim, or any regard for how this would impact me".

He was named the runner-up of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2014, with the victor that year being Bianca Del Rio. Channel 5 said its initial all-women line-up was to mark the100 years since women won the right to vote.

While speaking to media Wednesday, Pacyga said he is "afraid for" Lynch and his other clients in light of the #MeToo movement, and expressed concern about "stale accusations" for which there is no possibility of gathering physical evidence.

Lynch, however, has already filed notice that he will appeal the recommendations to the Student Sexual Misconduct Subcommittee (SSMS).

"This is not the flawless analogy, but it seems to me (this is) like where we had all of this hysteria when World War II started and we had the Japanese internment camps, and everybody rushed out of fear to do something like that", Pacyga said.

Via rape survivor and activist Abby Honold, a former University of Minnesota student, the victim in that alleged incident released a statement blasting Pacyga for a violation of privacy. Lynch was arrested in May 2016 after a woman made a criminal complaint of sexual assault against him. "Lynch is indicating that there was no sexual contact whatsoever", Pacyga said Wednesday. And when he asked her to hang out, she said, 'I wish it were that easy; I've got exams and things like that'. The alleged incidents happened in April and May of 2016, and the EOAA office conducted its investigation last October, 18 months later. "Because accusers came forward after 18 months, there's no way to collect and test evidence". "Reggie Lynch is in for the fight of his life and I'm afraid because he's already been denied a fair investigation by virtue of evidence that can not be collected".
