Oregon players investigated, not charged
UNDATED — The University of Oregon isn’t allowing three basketball players to participate in team activities after a student told police they sexually assaulted her at a postgame party and later at an apartment.
Police in Eugene investigated the allegations against 19-year-old Damyean Dotson, 19-year-old Dominic Artis, and 18-year-old Brandon Austin. Lane County District Attorney Alex Gardner decided there was not enough evidence to prove the sex wasn’t consensual.
Assistant athletic director Andy McNamara said the three players are not currently participating in any team activities, but the university has refused to say why, citing federal privacy laws.
