Indiana University to review 18 sexual misconduct cases

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University is set begin reviews of 18 sexual misconduct cases following allegations that the school’s associate dean of students sexually assaulted a woman at a December conference.

A woman has accused Jason Casares of sexually assaulting her at a conference in Fort Worth, Texas. Casares, who is also the school’s deputy Title IX coordinator, has been placed on administrative leave and has denied the allegations.

University Provost Lauren Robel has requested a review of all sexual misconduct cases from the past academic year that went to hearings with Casares on the hearing panel. The Herald-Times reports the reviews are set to begin this week.

The university and Fort Worth police have said they are conducting their own investigations of the allegations against Casares. No charges had been filed.
