“I kick myself now not just leaving after I got hurt,” she said. “But I wanted to be there.”

The former cadet, said one night she returned to her room after showering and found that Ahmad Ali Bradshaw, the quarterback, was there. He was best friends with her roommate, Lewis said.

Lewis claimed that Bradshaw raped her that night. The former cadet filed a formal report with the school, but Bradshaw denied the allegations.

After they laid down in the report, Lewis was given a rape test by the Army of the medical hospital and was on 24/7 suicide watch.

“If you love someone a vial of poison, and handing it out to another person, because no one wanted to touch it,” he said, “that is how I was treated.”

The school started with an investigation led by Maj. Damon M. Torres, which concluded that the two cadets had a voluntary sexual relationship. It was not immediately clear how or why Torres reached that the conclusion of the Daily Beast reported.

The Army Criminal Investigation Division and the Staff Judge Advocate opened a second research and found “insufficient evidence to charge Bradshaw with sexual violence.”

He was charged with violating the Cadet Disciplinary Code for “improper use of the facilities of the government by means of sexual activity, including, but not limited to: kissing, holding hands and caressing it,” said West Point regulations.

Torres suggested Bradshaw be punished by the Brigade of Directors and sign up for the Respect Mentorship Program. He was also excluded from playing football, while the investigation played.

Lewis said that the school punished her isolated detention. After the accusations, she said, she was targeted online by fellow cadets who called her “the whore of the corps.” Lewis said that she had sexual relations with a couple of West Point cadets, that was used against her by her classmates.

In the end, she transferred to a state college and has not returned since July 2015.

“I am not of the Class of 2019, nor could you pay me enough to be a member of an institution that treats their comrades in arms so bad. USMA has their work to do,” Lewis wrote on Facebook.

The academy gave a statement to read: “The Army takes all allegations of sexual abuse seriously, and any accusation of sexual abuse is thoroughly investigated. The Army and The U.S. Military Academy are aware that sexual assault of the arguments of a single incident were made against Cadet Bradshaw in 2014 and that the allegations were thoroughly investigated by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command. The investigation concluded that the allegations against Cadet Bradshaw were unfounded, and the case was closed.”

Bradshaw has continued as quarterback for the school. He was accused of cheating in 2016, but was scheduled to play on Saturday in the school’s annual game against the rival of U. S. Naval Academy.
