Woman Drugged and Raped on College Campus

According to PA Homepage, a woman is accusing a former resident director of sexually assaulting her on the University of Pittsburgh’s Johnstown campus located at 450 Schoolhouse Rd, Johnstown, PA 15904. 

The victim reported the assault to the police in January 2021. Allegedly on Sept. 28, 2013, the woman and a friend attended a fraternity party. She had met the then 30-year-old Cliff C. Maloney Jr. previously and knew he was the Resident Director at the Living Learning Center dorm. He invited her back to his dorm, where he offered her a glass of champagne. The victim claims the drink made her feel dizzy, and she quickly realized she had been drugged. However, unable to move her body Maloney took advantage of her sexually. The victim said she woke up and was lying naked by her alleged abuser. 

In 2021, Maloney was fired from his position as the Young Americans for Liberty president after several women in the organization accused him of sexual harassment. On Tuesday, April 26, 2022, Maloney was charged with two felony counts of rape and two felony counts of aggravated indecent assault.

How Long Do I Have To File a College Sex Abuse Case?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. As an experienced college sexual abuse lawyer, Brian recently shared some information regarding the legal right for victims of sexual assault on a college campus to file a lawsuit.

"Colleges must do everything possible to safeguard their students and guests from all forms of abuse, including emotional, physical, and sexual. To lessen the risks of these dangers on campus, colleges must employ specific security measures. Video cameras, patrolling security officers, and conducting background checks on all employees can help colleges stay safe from preventable crime. If a student or guest is sexually abused on campus, the college must conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that adequate security measures were in place during the attack. If a college failed to offer sufficient preventative security, it might be considered negligent in a civil lawsuit."

"Victims of sexual abuse often find it difficult to speak up about their experiences at the time of the incident. They may not fully grasp what happened until they are older and have a greater understanding of what happened. Other times, the agony and feeling of embarrassment due to what happened prevents people from speaking out. Furthermore, some victims only gain the courage to disclose what happened to them and desire to seek justice because others come forward with similar reports. However, it is crucial to know how long you have to file a sexual assault lawsuit since, in most circumstances, there are strict time constraints on when you can come forward. By consulting with an experienced college sexual abuse lawyer in their state, victims can learn the best course of legal action."
