ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A Hardin-Simmons University basketball player has been arrested for sexual assault.
Kadon Lewis, 20, was booked into the Taylor County Jail for Sexual Assault Tuesday and remains held on a $10,000 bond.
Police say Lewis is accused of sexually assaulting a known woman while she was asleep. Lewis’ arrest report states he confessed to having non-consensual sex with the victim.
Hardin-Simmons officials confirm Lewis is still enrolled as a student. Their website shows he is a Freshman point guard for the HSU basketball team.
The University released the following statement regarding Lewis’ arrest:
“The university is aware of the contents of the Probable Cause Statement released by the Abilene Police Department and is taking appropriate action under the provisions of Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972 and related federal guidance. Another federal law, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), dictates that the university refrains from discussing specific disciplinary action taken against students at this time. Therefore, until further notice, the university is unable to comment further on this event. As always, the safety and security of our students, faculty, and staff are our priority.”
