Haskell counselor files lawsuit over handling of sexual assault case

A counselor at Haskell Indian Nations University is suing the tribal college in Kansas over its handling of a sexual assault case.

Angelina Adams alleges she was demoted after she assisted a student who accused two football players of rape. She says the college released confidential counseling and medical information about the victim, in violation of Title IX, a federal law that protects people from discrimination based on sex.

"Defendants’ officers with authority to stop the retaliation had actual knowledge that they should not have handed over Jane Doe’s federally-protected educational and medical records to a criminal defense attorney representing one of Jane Doe’s assailants – without so much as a subpoena," the complaint, which was filed in federal court on Monday, reads.

Galen Satoe, now 21, and Jared Wheeler, now 20, have been charged in Douglas County in connection with the November 2014 incident at Haskell. Both went on trial in separate proceedings this year but the juries in both cases were unable to reach unanimous verdicts, The Lawrence Journal-World reported.

Satoe and Wheeler are both from Oklahoma. They were expelled after the incident, The Journal-World reported.

Wheeler is going to be retried on December 12, the paper reported. Prosecutors are still considering how to handle Satoe's case, the paper said.
