Sexual assault accusations on Virginia university campuses rarely lead to prosecution

Nov. 14, 2011
Review found no prosecutions of student-on-student sexual assault cases from 2008 to 2010

From The Richmond Times-Dispatch: A review of sexual-assault reports from seven Virginia universities found that no cases involving student-on-student assault resulted in criminal prosecution from 2008 through 2010. In virtually all instances, either the victim decided not to press charges or the commonwealth's attorney declined to take the case for lack of evidence. Cases handled through the student judiciary process rarely resulted in expulsion.
