University of San Francisco senior Ryan Kenneth Caskey, 21, of Hart Flat, pleaded innocent last week to charges that he raped four of his female classmates while they were unconscious.

The Garces High School graduate also faces four felony counts of assault.
During the Feb. 18 arraignment, bail was raised to $800,000 and Caskey was ordered to stay away from the USF campus and the alleged victims.

The alleged victims said that each of the incidents took place in on-campus residence halls between April 2008 and January of this year, according to San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris. The four women said that they were rendered unconscious after they drank alcohol at parties. Prosecutors have not said date rape drugs were involved.

A politics major and also a top performer in the USF Reserve Officers' Training Corps program, Caskey was temporarily suspended from the corps following his Feb. 11 arrest. According to one USF student, a Feb. 19 campus safety meeting erupted in student backlash against the Jesuit campus' military training program.

Caskey is the son of local businessman Darren Caskey, owner of Century Glass and its parent company, Caskey Corporation.

The senior Caskey did not return calls made to his Tehachapi and Bakersfield offices.

The University of San Francisco is a private, Jesuit-run university with an enrollment of about 8,700 students.

If convicted, Caskey faces three to eight years in state prison for each count of rape, according to California Penal Code Section 261.
