Florida Gators respond to bias accusation in Antonio Callaway case

5

August

The University of Florida (through spokesperson Janine Sikes) issued this response Friday afternoon to an accusation of possible bias in the Antonio Callaway sexual assault hearing:

The University of Florida is prohibited to comment on the existence or substance of student disciplinary matters under state and federal law. 

However, I can tell you that our student conduct process may be handled by a hearing officer, who could be a university employee or an outside professional, or by a committee of faculty and students.

Any hearing officer and all committee members are trained and vetted for their impartiality. A hearing officer or committee member would not be disqualified or lack objectivity simply because he or she had been a student athlete decades earlier or purchases athletic tickets as more than 90,000 people do each year.
