The students four years after high school mark the moment in life where students become independent and free. Because of the freedom, college students are more suspectiblento impetuous actions like drinking, doing drugs, and even commuting sexual assault. Sexual assault on campus has been a huge topic that has been discussed in the country and “colleges have done little to stop violence in their campus” (Dick, Ziering). In 2015, Brock Turner, a student from Stanford, sexually assaulted a young woman on campus. Turner claimed that because he was drunk, was with friends, and saw a “promiscuous” female students, that pressured him to collimating such a heinous crime.
As proven by Nigel Jaquiss, muckraking is still out there in the world. Muckraking does still exist in 2016 in newspapers as demonstrated by Nigel Jaquiss’s three-part Willamette Week expose titled, “The 30 year secret; A crime, a cover up, and the way it shaped Oregon.” “On May 6, he confessed” (Jaquiss) This article helped prove that Neil Goldschmidt raped a 14 year old girl for three years, and covered up the crime. This article also showed the long term effects of sexual assault, by showing how terrible the girl’s life way following the assault (Jaquiss). This article was a great way to expose Goldschmidt for what he had done, and it proved that he should not be someone that the people of Oregon look
Students entering universities encounter many new obstacles during college years. Undergraduates struggle to balance academics, extracurriculars, and social life as they navigate their way through higher education. Party culture and societal values have made college campuses a place where binge drinking and drug use are not only common, but considered a norm, resulting in unsafe sexual situations for both men and women. Widespread sexual assault is not a new phenomenon on college campuses, where 1 in 5 women experience attempted or completed assault over the course of a college career (Sexual Violence, Facts at a Glance, 2012). However, commentary and reporting on the topic of rape and violence on college campuses have gained rapid momentum in recent months.
In a November 19, 2015 story, Rolling Stone writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely described in horrific detail how a UVA student, given the made up name Jackie, was lured two years earlier by her date into a dark room at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house and brutally raped by seven men. But the Washington Post, and other news outlets, soon discovered inconsistencies in the 9,000-word story, “A Rape on Campus.” On November 22, the initial response of the story is felt, and outrage spreads as people read and respond to the article. The UVA president Teresa Sullivan suspends all campus fraternities, sororities, and Greek organizations due to community pressure. On November 24, Richard Bradley, former editor for George magazine, writes an essay, questioning the events of the story, and states that something about the piece didn’t feel right. On November 28, Erdely describes how she came to write the story.
Date rape is a unacceptable reoccurring problem in our society, where men feel ownership over women and a perceived entitlement to have sexual intercourse if they go out on a date with a woman, whether or not the woman wants to. When teenagers enter the world of high school, they are looking forward to the dating scene. For most teens, being in a relationship will be something to cherish forever. However, some may experience a very high level of aggression and violence in the relationship. “If you were to go into a high school and ask them how many have been in a relationship in the last six months where there 's been some aggression, the rate would be somewhere around 30%, for both boys and girls," says psychologist Jennifer Connolly.
CCIB received SOC 341 involving resident Camille Griffith (DOB: 03/09/84). Resident left a message with North Los Angeles County Regional Center (NLACRC) supervisor stating that her roommate, Patricia raped her.

Unfortunately, 85% of the rape victims had been targeted by someone they knew (Munch, Rape Myths on Trial). 57% of these rapes occurred while on dates with the attacker (Munch, Rape Myths on Trial). It is very common for a rape victim to keep to themselves after an attack as they feel it is
The Crime I read about in the articles that I researched were about the rape of a UVA student. The students name is identified by the alias of Jackie in both articles to protect her name and privacy during the publication of the articles. In the articles Jackie describes her experience of when she was forced against her will to engage in sexual acts that she had not consented to. Both of these articles were published because it raises awareness about rape on college campuses and what can be done to prevent the crime from happening again. In the first article I read UVA student details alleged gang rape by seven men during a fraternity initiation… and claims the school did nothing about it, recounts the events of what happened to Jackie on the night of September 28, 2012 when she went to the fraternity house Phi Kappa Psi.
Especially in areas like Baltimore, where female correctional officers make up seventy five percent of workers. The problem with female correctional officers is they are being used and manipulated by inmates and smuggle in contraband from the outside. Inmates prey on young officers, they look for females with low self-esteem and confidence. In addition, it is also noted that in Baltimore sixty to seventy-five percent of female officers have inappropriate sexual relationships and bring drugs and cellphones to gang members. Even though the relationships between inmates and guards appear to be consensual they are overall still initiated by the gang members.
Many people are quick to say that it will not happen to them, yet the statistics are shockingly high, especially for women, meaning that anyone can become a victim. Rana Sampson, a national problem-oriented policing consultant, reports that “women ages 16 to 24 experience rape at rates four times higher than the assault rate of all women making the college (and high school) years the most vulnerable for women.” This reveals how important it is that students should be taught to be aware of sexual assault so they can be able to identify it, stop it, and report it. Furthermore, most students believe they are safe from sexual predators, however, they are undoubtedly unaware that the attackers are typically acquaintances of the victim. According to a survey conducted by psychologist Mary Koss and her colleagues, 84% of those raped claimed to have known their attacker as prior to the incident, typically as a normal friend (Curtis). It is a common misperception that victims of acquaintance rape lie because they have regrets after consensual sex, however acquaintance rape is not a lie and it occurs to many students in America.
