PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The ex-president of a suspended Temple University fraternity has been charged with rape in connection with a second alleged sexual assault.
A spokesman for Philadelphia’s district attorney says 21-year-old Ari Goldstein was arraigned Wednesday on charges of rape and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. Bail was set at $1.5 million.
Goldstein’s attorney says he was involved in a “sustained” sexual relationship with the woman who says she was raped in November.
Goldstein is facing separate charges including attempted sexual assault for a February encounter in which a woman says he tried to force her to have oral sex.
