KU Rape Affidavits Sealed

KSAL StaffOctober 24, 2014

A Douglas County judge says probable cause affidavits in the alleged rapes of two women last month at the University of Kansas will not be open to the public.

University police said the alleged rapes occurred Sept. 28 in Hashinger Residence Hall. Two 21-year-old men, one a Kansas student and the other a Johnson County Community College student, were arrested. They both posted $50,000 bonds last week and are still enrolled at their schools. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 16.

After a hearing Tuesday, Douglas County District Court Judge Kay Huff ruled that the probable cause affidavits will remain sealed but did not explain her decision. Defense and prosecution attorneys asked that affidavits be sealed.

The Lawrence Journal-World sought the affidavits, citing a new state law.
