Most likely, UNC’s action against the student is revenge. Gambill’s story first came to light as part of a case against the school in which a former assistant dean accused UNC of intentionally under-reporting cases of sexual assault. Gambill was one of three students providing evidence to prove the dean’s case. After it went public, Gambill publicly addressed the failings of UNC’s system, reporting that they “were not only offensive and inappropriate, but they were so victim-blaming… They made it seem like my assault was completely my fault.”
Doesn't that potentially constitute slander if people know who you're talking about?
She had endured months of sexual abuse from a long-term boyfriend.
Since she admitted that she was publicly accusing him without any evidence to back her claim, she was found guilty.
She apparently sought relief through the school rather than filing a police report. Gambill has not responded to ABC News' requests for comment.
