Talia Johnson is a 19-year-old, female college student that has been raped at a party (Plummer, Makris, & Brocksen, 2014). Talia has decided to go through the school to hold her attacker accountable (Laureate Education, 2013). However, according the school representative, Talia has to be in the same room as her attacker and in fact she is sitting next to the attacker while talking to the school representative (Laureate Education, 2013). It appears that the school’s policies are to have both the victim and the attacker in the same room to address the issue. This will most likely be detrimental to the survivors of sexual assault. This policy will likely deter sexual assault victims from pursuing any action with the school. This will allow for attacker to continue to stay in school and potentially assault another person. Having them both in the room to give their side of the story without protection is a policy that needs to be amended. The policy of having one school representative to decide who they will believe is also in need of changing. Leaving the outcome to one school representative, whose motivation is to keep sexual assault out of the news, is asking the sexual assault survivor to be rigorously questioned. The policy of having only one “juror” need to be changed. Lastly, the consequences if the attacker is found to have committed the act of sexual assault is too lenient. The possible outcomes for the attacker is they may sit out one semester, one year, or they could be expelled from the college. I would suggest that if it was found that they did commit a sexual assault, they should be expelled. The survivor should not have to disrupt their education by changing school to get away from the attacker.
I would lobby for a panel of at least three to oversee the complaint of sexual assault. I would also make it so the survivor would not have to testify with the attacker sitting next to them. I policy on what the consequences for sexual assault would be changed to expulsion. Evaluating the success of the policy changes could come in a couple of different manners. One would be to give the survivors a survey as to how they felt the proceedings went and how they were treated. Another way to measure the success would be evaluating the number of sexual assaults and determine if there has been a decrease. With stricter consequences should result in less attacks.
