Below is a chronology of events that have taken place since the alleged sexual assault took place in Iowa City. I have no inside information, but I can't help but feel that this incident is going to grow into a major scandal, especially when the truth comes out about what the university administration actually knew, when they knew it, and what they did (or chose not to do) about it. It will make the actual crime seem like a minor part of the whole mess. Whatever is alleged to have happened occurred between 2:00 and 6:00 a.m. the morning of October 14. Later that day, October 14, the UI Department of Public Safety received a "rape kit" from the UI Hospitals. On October 23 two Hawkeye football players, whom Register sources say may have been with the complainant during the time in question, were removed from active participation on the team. The athletic program refused to provide any explanation at that time (or since, so far as I know) for their removal. At 4:13 p.m. on November 5 a woman who wanted to report an assault "about three weeks ago" to the Iowa City Police was referred to the Campus Police. By 4:50 p.m. that day, November 5, a report was received by the UI Department of Public Safety. On November 7 that report became public. Department Director Chuck Green has been quoted as saying, "I assure you, before Nov. 7, we didn't know about this . . .." On Wednesday, November 14, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agents joined Campus Police in searches of some Hillcrest dormitory rooms. On Friday, November 16, five search warrants were sealed by Johnson County Judge Amanda Potterfield. On Saturday, November 17, two of the Hawkeye football players whose room was searched (one of whom was earlier suspended from the team for drunken driving and later reinstated) both suited up for the Western Michigan game.
