University Investigation

Grand jury ends deliberations of charges in CU case

A grand jury has wrapped up its investigation into a sex-and-alcohol scandal in the University of Colorado football program. It looked into allegations that the university used sex, strippers and alcohol to recruit promising athletes. The panel had been meeting since May. Attorney General Ken Salazar declined to say what action the jurors would take. Nine women have said they were raped by Colorado football players or recruits since 1997, and three have sued the university. An independent commission concluded some football players used sex and alcohol to lure recruits. The commission said university officials did not condone the practice but accused them of lax oversight.
