Former Badger Cephus presses UW for readmission

MADISON (WKOW) — An attorney for Quintez Cephus says the University of Wisconsin-Madison is dragging its feet when it comes to readmitting the former Badgers wide receiver after a jury acquitted him in his recent sexual assault trial.

Steve Meyer, Cephus’ chief defense attorney in the sexual assault trial, said the university “sent us a clear message they do not want him (Quintez) as a student this coming semester.”

He said he’s not angry at the university for their actions during the investigation and trial but he just wants to be at the school where he’s felt so much support.

“My brothers supported me the whole time and I learned a lot from it,” he said.

According to his attorney, Kathleen Stillman and Stephen Meyer, it’s time for the university to follow the jury’s lead, and overturn their expulsion, given the former Badger’s acquittal.

“The answer that was so clear to the jury should also be clear to the administration,” Stillman said.

“The information provided today by attorney Stephen Meyer is false,”a statement from UW-Madison said. “UW-Madison is committed to performing a complete and thorough review of any petition for reinstatement that it receives.”
