Eugene, Oregon – Three UO basketball players kicked off the team for having sex with a freshman student have now been suspended from campus for up to 10 years. The Oregonian reports the school confirmed the suspensions Monday afternoon.

The Eugene Register Guard says John Clune, the attorney for the woman, said the suspensions depend on how long she stays at the school. He says it would have been hard for her to continue taking classes if the players were still on campus.

The attorney for Artis, Greg Veralrud, released a statement saying “we’re not surprised at the university’s action, even though a wealth of evidence supporting consensual conduct was presented.”

Damyean Dotson, Dominic Artis and Brandon Austin were dismissed from the team after the young woman filed a police report claiming she was raped. They claimed the sex was consensual. The Lane County District Attorney’s office declined to press charges, saying there was not enough evidence.
