Are Athletes More Likely to Commit Sexual Assault? Former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner was convicted last week of sexual assault for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster on the university’s campus. Outrage erupted when he was sentenced to just six months behind bars for the rape. At Baylor University, an investigation last month found that the athletic department ignored a series of allegations of sexual assault. In a pending class-action lawsuit against the University of Tennessee, women allege that the school accepts a culture of sexual violence which has allowed athletes there to get away with sexual assault. A new study of male undergraduates shows that more than half of participants on intercollegiate and recreational sports teams reported engaging in sexual coercion, including rape.
