ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - University of Central Florida fraternity Sigma Nu has been suspended pending a hearing on Thursday, after a member is accused of going on a rape rant. A woman recorded the rant on her cell phone in June, sparking an investigation.
The fraternity faces Title IX charges of condoning or encouraging acts of sexual misconduct. At one point on the recording, one person repeatedly says the word, rape.
In a statement, Sigma Nu Executive Director Brad Beacham said, " Sigma Nu officials received copies of recordings from the UCF police department. The words used by people in the recordings are disrespectful, despicable and vile. The Fraternity and University are investigating the recordings. Following the completion of the investigation, the Fraternity will take action as may be appropriate."
