WATERVILLE, Maine — Colby College says an investigation into an incident involving sexual misconduct in November has led to more than a dozen students being suspended or withdrawing altogether from the college.

Colby College says 15 students were cited for a range of violations of student policy including sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and lying to college officials.

Michael Kiser, vice president for communications, tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that cases against 14 of the students have been adjudicated, and one remaining case is pending. He says “a couple” of students withdrew, and the others were given suspensions. He declined to release identities.

The Colby Echo, the student newspaper at the college, says the suspended students are football players and that the football coach has since resigned.
