MADISON, Wis. (WFRV) — Wisconsin reinstated expelled wide receiver Quintez Cephus after his acquittal on sexual assault charges.
University of Wisconsin-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank announced the decision Monday. The school says it obtained information that wasn’t provided during a student conduct review. The statement said sanctions against Cephus have been “reduced” and his expulsion has been lifted. The statement didn’t elaborate.
This decision comes after a jury deliberated for 30 minutes early this month before acquitting Cephus, 21, on charges alleging he sexually assaulted two female students.
Paul Chryst, Wisconsin coach, said he would welcome Cephus back, although AP reports it is unclear when he would return to the team.
