Four women in 2015 reported to police that they were sexually assaulted by the same Utah State University student. Three of those women were Utah State students and also reported the assaults to their school. But an investigation by The Salt Lake Tribune found that no charges were ever filed and it appears the university never fully investigated the allegations or sanctioned the student, who has graduated.

Under Title IX, a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in education, schools must take action if there is a potential continuing threat to students.
