COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Elton Yarbrough was a young man seemingly on his way up: An economics major at Texas A&M University; a member of the university’s military cadet corps; a musician in the marching band; the pride of little Palestine, Texas; and soon to be an officer in the U. The one-time Texas A&M senior is now sitting in a Texas prison until at least 2015 for felony sexual assault.
But police say he was also one other thing: A serial rapist.
Five women, including four female A&M students, testified Yarbrough raped or sexually assaulted them between 20, although he was only tried on one assault charge. Yarbrough is one of six alleged serial offenders at colleges across the country the Center for Public Integrity found during its year-long investigation of sexual assault on college campuses.
The six were accused of assaulting multiple women in court records, campus records or other public documents.
