Rape charge dropped against USC student after video surfaces

The woman's roommates called the police. She later said: “That’s the thing that bothers me psychologically,” Doe said. “A lot of people think I was the one who forced, who wrongly accused him of something he didn’t do, when I didn’t accuse anyone of anything in the first place.”

Gretchen Means, the executive director of OED for USC, refused to allow Premjee's attorney to be present during the Title IX investigation. During a Daily Trojan interview in November, Braun said that Means was dishonest, that she had not allowed Premjee and him to record an interview and had called Braun a physical threat to USC. Braun said in the interview. “I have a case where consent is on tape. What more does USC want?”

Premjee was expelled by USC anyway, after being cleared of the charge by a criminal court judge.

“There is no indication of any withdrawal of consent,” the judge wrote in his ruling in July. “There is a very strong indication that the alleged victim in this case was the initiator of any conduct between the defendant and the alleged victim.”

“My professional life will definitely be impacted for the rest of my life,” Premjee said.
