At the time of me writing this, Yale is playing in their first NCAA tournament game in 54 years. They will be without their former senior captain, Jack Montague, who was expelled from Yale for alleged sexual misconduct last month under extremely iffy circumstances. He was three months short of graduating.
In a statement from Montague’s lawyer from the original post I wrote on Monday, the initial details seemed suspicious.
The two students developed a relationship that led to them sleeping together in Jack’s room on four occasions in the fall of 2014.
On the first occasion, the woman joined Jack in bed and stayed the night.
On the second occasion, she entered his bed voluntarily, removed all of her clothes and, during the night, woke him to perform oral sex.
On the third occasion, she joined him in bed, voluntarily took off all her clothing, and they had sexual intercourse by consent.
On the fourth occasion, she joined him in bed, voluntarily removed all of her clothes, and they had sexual intercourse. Then they got up, left the room and went separate ways. Later that same night, she reached out to him to meet up, then returned to his room voluntarily, and spent the rest of the night in his bed with him.
The sole dispute is as to the sexual intercourse in the fourth episode. She stated that she did not consent to it. He said that she did.
Shady, right? We’re just getting started.
According to a source who spoke to Daily Mail, it’s very possible that Montague was used as a scapegoat by Yale administrators to make a stand as universities grapple to combat sexual assault issues. The school may have been looking for a “high-profile, non-minority student whose parents were not major donors or alumni as a ‘perpetrator.”
The most recent evidence certainly supports this claim.
The source reveals that the alleged ‘victim’ texted Montague several times after the alleged assault with increasing intensity asking to meet up again. He replied, “Is everything all right?” to which she replied something to the affect of “I’m okay, I’m not pregnant or anything.”
The source continued, “When they did meet again, they hugged and she told him it was over between them. They parted on amicable terms.”
When asked by a friend why she wouldn’t just recant the statement, she replied “I can’t. They won’t let me.”
The University police and the New Haven Police department both say they were never called in to investigate the incident.
If this was an inside job and Montague was used as a whipping boy, it sure cost him a hell of a lot–his reputation, a degree, and playing in the biggest game of his life.
