Two Boise State football players have been expelled from the university and a third has been suspended from the school for a year after a sexual assault investigation, according to the players families and BSU documents obtained by the Idaho Statesman.

Redshirt freshman linebacker Marquis Hendrix, of Ocala, Fla., and redshirt freshman cornerback Donzale Roddie, of Compton, Calif., have been expelled, their parents confirmed to the Statesman on Wednesday night. Redshirt freshman safety Darreon Jackson, of Derby, Kansas, has been placed on a one-year suspension, according to his father.

All three have been the focus of a Title IX sexual misconduct investigation launched by Boise State last fall, after a female student told Title IX Director of Compliance Annie Kerrick she was sexually assaulted by Boise State players.

All three players were notified of an investigation in January and February, and all three signed no-contact orders in February, according to the documents.

No criminal charges

In incidents Aug. 19, Sept. 26 and Oct. 2 of last year, the alleged victim said she was coerced into performing oral sex on the three players, or in one incident, on a recruit during his official visit. The woman first met with Kerrick in person Nov. 30. She was interviewed in February in depth about the majority of details in the complaint.

Boise State is committed to thorough and fair investigations into all allegations of sexual misconduct " and to holding parties accountable when they are found to be responsible for violating the student code of conduct. But federal privacy laws restrict our ability to comment on any student records or any specific investigations, Boise State spokesman Greg Hahn told the Statesman late Wednesday.

In general, the Statesman does not name alleged sexual assault victims.
