U. of Iowa expels student for pattern of sexual misconduct

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - The University of Iowa has expelled a student due to sexual misconduct.

The university announced Friday that a student with a pattern of sexual predatory behavior had been expelled. That behavior included forcible fondling and forcible sodomy.

The university did not release the student's name.

The expulsion is a part of Sally Mason's new Six Point Plan to Combat Sexual Assault on campus.

The plan was developed after several students expressed concerns over the way the university was responding to sexual assaults on campus. Several asked why there was not a "no tolerance" policy in place, which would expel offenders.
