Suit says LSU too hard on student accused of filming sex between students

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A lawsuit has been filed claiming LSU is seeking a punishment that is too harsh for an engineering student accused of recording two other students having sex in a dorm room in March.

Thursday's state district court lawsuit, filed in Baton Rouge, says less serious sanctions have been handed down in the past to star football players convicted of various crimes.

The suit was filed on behalf of Xavien R. Riascos. It says Riascos' recommended punishment was suspension of more than three years

John DiGiulio, an attorney representing Riascos, described the allegations involving his client as "a college prank that has turned into a sex offense."

Riascos and another student were arrested for alleged video voyeurism, but neither has been charged by prosecutors.
