UCLA Freshman Faces Rape Charges
April 9, 2013
A UCLA freshman water polo player is due in court April 25th to face rape charges. Hakop Jack Kaplanyan was arrested a week ago today after a female UCLA student filed a report with campus police saying she was raped in Kaplanyan’s dorm room. He’s hired an attorney.
Fox 11’s Gigi Graciette says Kaplanyan’s family is hoping to exonerate their son — who’s a standout athlete.
Kaplanyan has been suspended from the university. No word yet on whether he’ll appeal that suspension.
