STORRS, Conn. (AP) - The University of Connecticut's police chief is disputing the assertion by former football coach Paul Pasqualoni that he was never informed that one of his players had been accused of sexually assaulting a woman on campus.
Police chief Barbara O'Connor also says the state's attorney's office was involved in the decision not to bring charges against the player.
UConn student Rosemary Richi says she was raped by a football player in September 2011, and is one of four women who have sued the university, alleging it failed to properly respond to their accusations.
The Associated Press does not normally name the alleged victims of sexual crimes unless they wish to be identified. Richi has gone public with her complaint.
Reached by phone Wednesday, Pasqualoni told the AP he was never informed about the incident, which Richi brought to campus police this past spring.
