Rape survivor sues Georgetown College, alleges lack of support and inadequate security

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday, rape survivor Ava Stokes accused Georgetown College, her volleyball coach, and multiple college administrators of attempting to silence her after the attack, and failure to provide security that would’ve prevented the attack.

Cody Arnett, 36, was convicted in July of the 2018 rape and the jury recommended he serve life in prison.

After Arnett’s conviction, Stokes spoke publicly for the first time about the 2018 attack with an emotional social media post and an interview with LEX 18. She said that she wanted to come forward and show other survivors of sexual assault that they should be proud of the fact they survived.
