You may find this little nugget interesting

In the spring of 2012, Gambill filed a report of sexual assault to UNC against her ex-boyfriend. Gresham said the case was adjudicated in a 20-hour hearing by a University Hearings Board of two students, two faculty members and one administrator.

Three members of the board — one student, one faculty member and the administrator — were female, Gresham said.

The board, which was utilized while UNC was in the process of removing sexual assault from the student-led Honor Court’s jurisdiction, found Gambill’s ex-boyfriend not guilty — in a 5-0 decision — on two counts of sexual harassment, Gresham said.

He was found guilty in a 4-1 decision of verbal harassment, Gresham added.

I agree. Unfortunately though, Rape, and especially date rape, is one of the most difficult crimes to prove. Usually, no one really knows what happens except for the accused and the accusor.

One of my lousiest memories of college: A friend of mine was accused of date rape. The girl wound up not pursuing it via police (for reasons I don't remember) but after listening to him describe what had happened, I came to a really painful conclusion.

He was guilty :(

Not a thing I could do about it justice-wise, but after that we were no longer friends.

I saw the other side of it. Girl accused a guy of taking advantage of her when she was passed out, but another girl walked in on them when they were doing the deed, and the accusor was on top riding him, so her accusation went nowhere.

More often than not, the woman is telling the truth, but not always.

I agree.

As in a lot of things though, phony victims make it harder for true victims.

Definitely a tough situation... I've been seeing some reports on the morning news shows about this guys trial in Montana, the college QB.

From what I've seen it's a straight up he-said-she-said where she says she said no and he continued, and he says she was a willing participant. Tough spot for the jurors in those cases... I guess you just have to weigh all the testimony to make sure nobody's coming up with inconsistencies.

You should know that rape is not about sex, but about power. So, it's not really about whether the victim (male or female) is "bang-worthy."

Public lynching for anyone lying about being raped, same goes for the rapers. Maybe then people would think twice before ruining someones life...

Of course there would need to be very solid evidence before they are exposed of... (I Know that one was coming)
