Title IX investigations dona€™t have the same burden of proof as court cases. In a Title IX investigations, you just have to be foundA more likely responsible than not to substantiate an allegation.

In the case of Phillips on the most serious charges, he was cleared.

The University of Missouri has closed its investigation of Terrence Phillips and did not find enough evidence to support allegations of rape, stalking and sexual misconduct, the former MU basketball player told The Star on Thursday.

Reed showed The Star two documents that indicate Phillips had been found not responsible for two separate incidents that would have been considered a€œsex discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual misconducta€ under university policy. He later posted a three-page statement on his Twitter account.

a€œToday, I can finally speak,a€ Phillips wrote, in part. a€œToday, the Title IX investigation Ia€™ve been undergoing for the last 6 months is finally over. Today, I can finally say that I was found not responsible of the allegations against me of sexual misconduct, rape, exploitation, and stalking.a€

a€œWhen I was kicked off the team, I think then everyone thought I was found guilty,a€ Phillips told The Star on Thursday.

Phillips told The Star that the experience had taken a mental toll on him. He said he had applied to another school, which he declined to name, but was waiting to hear from that collegea€™s admissions office.
