According to ESPN, three Georgetown Hoyas are facing some serious allegations. Two players of the team — Josh LeBlanc and Galen Alexander — have been accused of harassment.
Both of these players have been give restraining orders. A student filed the restraining order against LeBlanc and Alexander back on Nov. 5, according to the post.
A third player, Myron Gardner, is facing more serious allegations. He is accused of “sexual harassment and assault.”
“In response to an alleged burglary that I believe Joshua LeBlanc committed against me on September 16, 2019, Joshua threatened bodily harm against myself and my roommate,” the complaint read. “He continued to threaten me verbally and via text message in the following week.”
Neither LeBlanc and Alexander appeared at their hearing on Nov. 14. Nearly one week later, a restraining order was ordered against the two.
On Nov. 12, according to the post, there was a separate restraining order against the three men. The woman, who filed it, said that she was sexually harassed and assaulted by Gardner on Sept. 15.
One day later on Sept. 16, she alleges that her residence was ransacked by Gardner, LeBlanc, and Alexander.
“Georgetown takes student conduct issues very seriously and ensures that they are investigated thoroughly,” the school statement said. “While we are not able to comment on specific cases, we have processes for investigating and adjudicating alleged violations for our student code that are fair to both parties. We encourage any student who has a concern to be in contact with the Georgetown University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct.”
The woman also has filed complaints with the authorities.
One of the three, according to the story, is departing the program.
“Georgetown University men’s basketball players James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc will not be playing for the men’s basketball team effective immediately and will not be members of the team for the remainder of the season,” the school’s statement read.
