On February 22, 2002, Jeremy Goldstein a student at Ohio State University sexually assaulted a woman he knew. Nineteen days earlier, on February 3, 2002, Jeremy Goldstein, was the subject of a complaint of alleged rape that he committed upon another female student.

Two weeks after the second assault, Jenny Kline, director of residence life, made the connection between the two rape reports. She scheduled a meeting with Goldstein on March 13 (2002), according to legal documents from OSU. While the meeting took place, several other students came to the office to file complaints against Goldstein, according to a motion filed by OSU.

As a result of the meeting, Goldstein was expelled from the dorms, according to the university. Jeremy Goldstein moved to an apartment on 13th Ave and continued attending classes for nearly a year and a half.

Dateline NBC exposed this case on national TV on December 11, 2005.
