A Southern Methodist University sophomore has been banned from the University's campus and suspended from the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity after he was caught on tape by police confessing to forcing another male student to perform oral sex on him.
Details after the jump.
The alleged perpetrator, John David Mahaffey, 19, is a Hunt scholar, a student senator, a scholarship committee chairman, and an officer on SMU's Inter-fraternity council and has many close family ties to the University.
According to the affidavit, the other man, who is also an SMU student, said Mahaffey forced him to give oral sex. He told Mahaffey “no” and “stop” several times, but felt intimidated and was afraid Mahaffey would get violent. He said Mahaffey told him “you better not tell a soul,” the affidavit said.
The next day, the student met with SMU police and agreed to record a phone call with Mahaffey. During the phone call, he told Mahaffey “you know I did not want to do that?” According to the affidavit, Mahaffey replied, “I know you didn’t, but we have to say it was consensual or lawyers, parents, and the school will be involved.”
