Taylor Bruton had no idea that the young man who gave her a hug had been suspended from college until she saw the news report on television that Brian Ferguson had been kicked out of college for allegedly ‘sexually assaulting‘ her.  She explained that after Brian Ferguson hugged and kissed her on the top of her head, that she was slightly startled but not alarmed. Teachers had noticed the incident.

Bruton talking with NBC DFW said the punishment went too far and that is was just “a peck.”

 “They asked me about the incident. I explained what happened and I told them, ‘It’s not a big deal. I don’t want anyone to get in trouble and I don’t feel the need to report this.’ And they asked me for a written statement, just in case.”

Feeling badly about how things had transpired, Burton wanted to meet with Ferguson to assure him that he had done nothing wrong. The meeting which can be viewed in the video below, took place on Wednesday.
