UNC Rape Suspect Allen Artis Turns Himself In

The University of North Carolina linebacker who is accused of sexual battery and assault has turned himself in to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, according to a statement released by the department. Allen Artis allegedly raped fellow student Delaney Robinson during a party at the school's athletic dorm, and she contends that local law enforcement and school officials did not appropriately investigate the alleged crime. Robinson, a sophomore and pre-business student, held a press conference on Tuesday condemning the school's actions. She has filed "self-sworn" warrants, which were signed by a magistrate on Tuesday. District Attorney Jim Woodall told The Daily Beast on Wednesday that the investigation is still active and open. About 9 a.m., Artis was released by the magistrate under a $5,000 bond.
