UNC Student Risks Expulsion by Going Public With Alleged Rape


In an email sent to ABCNews.com, Moon also says a faculty advisory committee is available to the student attorney generals "for consultation in difficult cases."

UNC developed a new process for responding to sexual assault complaints in August. They are no longer addressed by the Honor Court system.

The school points out that it has retained a top lawyer who deals with sexual-misconduct issues, who has been on campus in the past few weeks to "guide an open and transparent conversation about how the issue of sexual assault affects the campus and culture that is focusing on education and engagement," according to Moon's written statement.

It's unclear whether the policy change resulted from Gambill's case.

Gambill told The Daily Tarheel that she plans to respond to the charges with a claim of not guilty.

"This is way bigger than me. I'm just one example of many," she said. "I know there are many other people whose voices deserve to be heard."
