LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A Haskell Indian Nations University employee alleges in a lawsuit that she was demoted from her job as a student counselor after trying to help a student who said she was raped.

The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/2dSI4EC ) reports that Angelina Adams sued Monday in federal court.

Adams says Haskell leaders improperly expelled the female student after she became involved in an altercation with a male Haskell student in March. Adams protested and said the female student hadn’t been given due process.

The female student said she was a 19-year-old freshman when she was raped last November in a university dorm. Both of her accused attackers also were expelled and their trials ended in hung juries.

Haskell spokesman Stephen Prue didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.
