Attorney Karen Truszkowski says the women she represents who are the victims of sexual assault by student-athletes are often discouraged from reporting what has happened to them.

She says that those who do come forward are often retaliated against by their peers, their schools, and their communities.

“The victimization after the assault is much worse than the assault itself, and I hear that repeatedly,” says Truszkowski.

Criminal defense attorney Brian Watkins says student-athletes can be easy targets for false accusations. He says, “Often we see athletes, they are pretty much convicted on the accusation, and their careers are over before they ever get a chance to defend themselves.”
