CU Sex Scandal

University of Colorado President Elizabeth Hoffman says sex is not part of the C-U recruiting program, and hat it's not sanctioned by the coaches.

Hoffman said in a deposition released yesterday that sex is a specific violation of recruiting rules, but also said she wouldn't stop recruiting for football.

The statements came under questioning last month by attorneys in a federal lawsuit filed against CU by alleged rape victims.

In a deposition released earlier this year, Boulder County District Attorney Mary Keenan said CU did use sex and alcohol as recruiting tools.

That comment helped spark the recruiting scandal.

At least eight women have said they were raped by football players or recruits since 1997, though no charges have been filed.
