Not Guilty Plea To ‘Recorded’ Fraternity Rape

(West Lafayette, IN-AP) – A college student from Jackson, New Jersey is pleading not guilty to an accusation of rape, despite having recorded an encounter on his cellphone.

The alleged incident took place in Indiana between 18-year-old Sigma Tau Gamma pledge Richard Chan and his female accuser. Police say that Chan, a Purdue University student, was intoxicated on October 19th when he followed the woman into a bathroom at an off-campus fraternity party and committed the act.

He’s been suspended from the university and banned from campus, and his fraternity has been suspended as well. His trial is set for January.
