DOVER, Del. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights has reprimanded Wesley College in Dover for violating the rights of students accused of sexual misconduct.

The News Journal reports (https://delonline.us/2dPH8Ru) that in a settlement announced Wednesday the college vowed to make its grievance process fairer to the accused and re-investigate some cases dating back to 2013.

The critique was prompted by a complaint from the mother of a student expelled with three others after he was accused of helping to set up a live stream of two people having sex. She said her son didn’t participate and the college didn’t properly investigate. Officials found that the student wasn’t interviewed during the investigation and wasn’t allowed to defend himself at his hearing.

Officials say the college handled several other cases similarly.
