Rutgers University student accused of raping a woman at a dormitory was his father, who stood up to his former student’s legal team and was ultimately vindicated by a judge.
Johns Hopkins University student Justin Humphries, 20, was accused last year of raping and sexually assaulting the woman in his dorm room at the university’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
His father, John Hopkins University Police Chief Mark Humphries Sr., said his son had told his mother he would kill himself if she did not accept the charges.
Her lawyers, led by his mother, accused John Hopkins of making false statements and filing a false police report in an attempt to silence his son.
The judge in his case said the police report was an attempt by Humphries to silence him and that his son was not at fault for the allegations.
Humphries Sr. said his family is still in shock over the ruling, which he said was made in haste because he wanted to let his son know he would not be silenced.
Hugh’s father said Humphries has been through too much to be allowed to sit back and let this happen.
His son was told by his lawyers to stop making false accusations, Humphries said.
H Humphries also said he was happy the judge ruled against Humphries’ parents, who he described as a good family.
“I’m very happy that the court made a fair decision,” he said.
“We’re just thrilled it was a fair and fair outcome.
It’s a great day for us and for the community.”
In a statement, Humphrys said he is proud of his son’s accomplishments and has not spoken to his parents.
“It is very disappointing that this happened to my son, as well as his parents,” Humphries Jr. said.
“Our family remains in shock, but are thankful to God that the outcome was so well-justified.”
The incident was captured on surveillance video and Humphries claimed the woman attacked him, according to a complaint filed against him.
Humphries later testified that he and his girlfriend had sex before leaving his room, but the accuser’s attorney did not contest that account.
Huffers said he did not know he had a consensual relationship with the accuser, according.
He also said the woman threatened to reveal his girlfriend’s name and threatened to call the police if he did.
The woman did not reveal that she was his girlfriend.
The woman’s attorney told the judge Humphries and his family are not entitled to privacy and that Humphries had a right to privacy.
“She’s got the right to know that her privacy was violated,” attorney Jason Johnson told the court.
“That’s the law, and the court should uphold that.”
The court also denied a request by Humphrys’ parents to have his name removed from the accuser list, but ruled that he was entitled to anonymity under a consent decree.
The accuser’s mother said Humphrys was being “burdened with a tremendous burden” and was making false allegations because he does not want to be punished for the alleged misconduct.
The case has prompted many universities to review their policies, which many are considering.
