A former female Baylor athlete who was sexually assaulted by former Baylor and Boise State football player Sam Ukwuachu apparently has reached a settlement with the school, the Dallas Morning News reported Thursday.
“All I can say is that the matter has been satisfactorily resolved,’’ Colorado attorney John Clune said in the DMN. He’s a prominent Title IX attorney who represents the victim.
Ukwuachu transferred to Baylor from Boise State before the 2013 season. He was found guilty in August of the sexual assault, which occurred in October 2013. Transfer rules required him to sit out the 2013 season.
He sat out the 2014 season for reasons that were never revealed. Ukwuachu was sentenced to 180 days in county jail and 10 years felony probation. He sought a retrial in October but was denied.
He immediately appealed his conviction. The appeal is pending. The female athlete subsequently transferred and has continued to play her sport.
