Former MSU wide receiver Keith Mumphery reportedly expelled for sexual misconduct

A former Michigan State University football player is banned from campus because he violated the school's Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct policy.

According to information obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the newspaper, Mumphery is accused of sexually assaulting a female student in her dorm room in March of 2015, which is after his playing career at Michigan State ended but while he was still enrolled at the school in a graduate studies program. The newspaper summarized the documents as saying police talked to the woman and Mumphery, with the reports offering "conflicting accounts of who was the aggressor and whether elements of their sexual behavior were consensual". He was banned until December 31, 2018, and if he violates that order he could face arrest.

The woman reported the incident the same day to MSU police, where the case was forwarded to the Ingham County Prosecutor's Office in late March of that year.

The Division of Student Affairs and Services notified MSU Police in June of 2016 that Mumphery was "Permanently removed from MSU effective immediately", and is "Prohibited from reenrolling at MSU in any capacity".

The university has yet to take action against three current unnamed players last week, after an investigation stemming from a January sexual assault complaint, according to the Free Press. The Free Press reported that police documents said assistant county prosecutor Steve Kwasnik chose to not bring charges several months later, on August 24, 2015, because the case "could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and the accuser did not return contact".

The 24-year-old has 24 receptions in two seasons with the Texans while also seeing significant time on special teams. Prosecutors later determined there was not sufficient evidence to charge Mumphery, who was selected in the fifth round by Houston about six weeks later.

The Texans are now "gathering information" and have no comment on the matter.
