Sometimes speaking through gasps of tears and other times with steady fierceness, nine young women on Tuesday detailed pleading "no" while being held down and forcibly sexually assaulted during their time at Eastern Michigan University. Then, after 13 charges against Dustyn Durbin, 24, of Monroe were bound over to trial court, the women stepped outside into the sun, together. Cedric Simpson bound over all but three of the charges levied against Durbin at his preliminary examination.
Two women listed as victims did not appear for the hearing and their cases may be brought at a later time, Assistant Washtenaw County Prosecutor John Vella said. One charge lacked intent, Simpson said. The incidents bound over Tuesday are reported to have occurred between andduring Durbin and the women's time at the university. Durbin, masked as he exited the courthouse, did not consent to an interview as his attorney, David Goldstein, spoke up to decline comment. The women also declined to comment. The Detroit Free Press is not naming the women based on the nature of the case. A sorority member — the first woman to testify — was home in bed after a fraternity party when Durbin texted her at the end of fall with an invite to an after-party at his own fraternity house, Alpha Sigma Phi, at Ballard St.
She slipped, fell, and hit her head on ice on the way in, she said. She then asked to be taken home. She and Durbin ended up in his bedroom, where he said she could lie down, and they put on a movie. Still, she asked him to take her home. Her voice rose and cracked as she spoke before court audio — aired to media members on YouTube — muffled the rest of her statement. Durbin pinned her down by her neck and raped her while she cried, she testified through tears. As the night went on, he inserted his fingers into her anus, became angry and choked her when she complained of the pain, and later forced her mouth onto his penis, she testified.
He took her home when she lied and said she was going to puke, she testified. She bled for days. She did not report the incident because she kept questioning whether it was her fault, she said. A friend had also had a bad experience reporting an assault to the university, she said. She came forward after news articles about Durbin emerged during the summer of In Novembera freshman EMU student stepped outside for a cigarette a get-together at Alpha Sigma Phi and Durbin asked to go to her dorm with her group, the second woman to testify said at Durbin's preliminary exam.
Goldstein cut in during cross-examination. They started kissing on the couch in the dorm suite living room when they got back, she said. Durbin indicated he wanted sex, the woman said. He carried her to the bathroom and started to take her clothes off, then later shoved his hand down her pants as they kissed on the couch, she said. Then she felt him start to touch her tampon string. He used force on her head all the same, she said, and she was unable to move her head away because of how he was holding it. He cornered her, and put his arm on the wall to keep her from moving until she forgave him, she testified.
She was a sophomore when she saw Durbin, an acquaintance, at a neon-themed fraternity party on Oct. Much later, she said, he apologized and asked for lunch as friends. The fourth woman to testify said she was in a sorority during her freshman year when she went to a formal dance on April 8, After, she said she suffered attempted rape.
A ificant portion of her testimony broadcast to the public was muffled or unclear on court audio. The Women want sex Dustin woman to testify said she was unable to consent on a February night with Durbin. She remembers running to the bathroom and falling over, unbalanced, and puking, she said. She was naked with no memory of how she became so, and he penetrated her vagina, she said. She got dressed the next morning and found she had bruises on her Women want sex Dustin thighs, forearms, and a wrist, she said. She also had bruises on her knees, which she attributed to her bathroom fall.
EMU in a statement issued Friday said it received one anonymous complaint related to the three former EMU students now in court but that it was unable to follow up on it. It also had another case where the complainant did not want to move forward. She shifted slightly, and he pulled away and rolled over, she said. She went to the bathroom, then downstairs until her friends woke up, she said.
Then, on May 12,she was at the fraternity house when they connected again. He invited her over, she finished a bottle of wine and asked her to him on the bed while they watched TV. Then, he started touching her back, eventually sticking his hand into her waistband, she said.
Later, he badgered her to sleep in his bed with him instead of his couch, despite her concerns that they were both in relationships, she said. She eventually gave in. She would wake up multiple times with behaviors, including pinching her nipples and offering an unsolicited back massage, she said. She was supposed to be meeting someone on Dec.
She declined. He also squeezed at her breasts under her shirt.

He started speaking low and asked her to sit next to him so she could hear him. He went on to force her hand to squeeze his penis, then flipped her over and crushed her with his body, she said. He would, over the course of the evening, straddle her to force his penis in her mouth, forcefully stick his fingers in her underwear when she tried to turn away, then forced the oral interaction again, she said.
He said if she told anyone, he would say it was consensual. This worried her; she was trying to get back with an ex-boyfriend in the fraternity, she said. Durbin's attorney, Goldstein, didn't have a lengthy argument against bind over, with the exception of the charge Simpson threw out.
