The alleged victim spoke to WKRG News 5 last week about what she says happened.

Vassil Kokali, a senior at Spring Hill College, was booked into jail shortly before 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning and is being charged with first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, and first-degree burglary.

Kokali faced a judge virtually for a bond hearing a few hours after being booked into jail where Judge Spiro Cheriogotis granted him $75,000 bond for his three charges.

The state was seeking $50,000 for each charge.

Kokali is an international student from Italy and was also ordered to surrender his passport.

Kokali’s attorney to WKRG News 5 outside the courtroom she believes Kokali is innocent and is confident he will be exonerated. She added Kokali has been cooperative throughout the investigation, passed a polygraph test, and turned himself into jail.

Kokali will be back in court for his arraignment on April 6.

Students and alumni also protested last weekend demanding action.
