The powers at Xavier have egg all over their faces on this one. The standard of proof for a Grand Jury indictment is far lower than required for a criminal conviction, and the grand jurors obviously felt the case against Wells didn't even rise to that level.
They should have waited for the legal process to play out -- at bare minimum, though, they should have at least waited for formal charges to be filed.
Now, they need to do the right thing and invite Wells back to the university and the basketball team.
