Myron Gardner, Georgetown Hoyas

Back in September allegations of sexual harassment, assault, and burglary were brought against three basketball players from the Georgetown Hoyas.

On September 15, freshman Myron Gardner, was accused of sexual assault by a female student. The accuser went on to allege that her home was burglarized by Gardner and teammates Josh LeBlanc and Galen Alexander the following day, September 16. According to CBS the three players were slapped with restraining orders on November 5.

The accuser shared with CBS Sports that, ”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 accuser’s statement reads. “He continued to threaten me verbally and via text message the following week. Joshua has also committed violence against women in the past.”

The Georgetown Hoyas are 4-3 so far this season and are preparing to take on Oklahoma. The organization took a moment to address the assault and burglary allegations, “Georgetown takes student conduct issues very seriously and ensures that they are investigated thoroughly. 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.”
