OC Register- Protest at UCI

Citing allegations of sexual assault, protesters Wednesday rallied to demand the resignation of the UC Irvine senior who represents the 220,000 students attending University of California campuses.

Jesse Cheng, sole student member of the 26-person UC Regents board, denies the accusations by his ex-girlfriend, a UCLA graduate student known by the pseudonym "Laya."
Calls for Cheng's ouster stem from an October incident in which Laya says he tried to rape her. The District Attorney declined to file charges, but a UC Irvine inquiry determined Cheng touched Laya without consent, a finding he has appealed.

On Wednesday, more than two dozen demonstrators gathered in front of the school's administration building, in the middle of a UCI street fair.
