High school seniors are in the process of making college selections.
But before picking a school, investigate how prospective colleges handle sex-related offenses and talk with your child about this issue.
This concerns the quality of due process on college campuses for students accused of sex-related offenses. “Due process” means the fairness to the accused of the process for adjudicating these charges.
It would be easy but unwise to dismiss this issue by thinking your child wouldn’t rape anybody. Most cases involve situations where the male claims sex was consensual while the female says otherwise.
For example, in lawsuits, males have asserted instances of consensual sex were claimed but weeks or months later to be nonconsensual when the female later saw the male with another woman.
Also, college sex-offense policies cover more than just having sex. It could include unwanted touching and certain verbal comments, although most expulsion cases concern intercourse.
