Title IX report clears Michigan State University basketball players of sex assault

Michigan State investigators have determined that three former basketball players were not responsible for allegedly sexually assaulting a female student in 2015, according to a Title IX investigation report issued Wednesday.

The woman, Bailey Kowalski, graduated from MSU in May, just weeks after she came forward publicly during a news conference. She alleged that in April 2015 she was drugged and gang-raped by three now-former Spartans basketball players. In April 2018, Kowalski filed a still-pending Title IX lawsuit against the university, which prompted the Title IX investigation. Kowalski never reported the alleged crime to police, saying in a previous interview with Outside the Lines that she had been afraid of getting in trouble for having a fake ID at the bar where she had met the players that night.

School investigators questioned Kowalski's credibility because she possibly misidentified one of the players she said took part in the alleged assault on the night of April 11, 2015, at an apartment of one of the players.

Two of the players Kowalski named in her interview told investigators that they had consensual sex with her that night, according to Michigan State's report. However, the players said the third man Kowalski had identified was actually someone else. The third player she had named denied being at the apartment that night.
