Update on UNC sexual assault case

“U.S. to Investigate UNC-Chapel Hill's Handling of Sexual Assaults” (
 “The U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights plans to investigate how the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill handles sexual assaults on the campus, the Associated Press reported. The agency said in a March 1 letter that it would conduct an inquiry into a complaint filed on behalf of 64 women in January that alleged, among other things, that said the individuals who run the campus judicial system mistreated victims and that upper-level administrators pressured them to underreport sexual assault statistics to the federal government”.

While the investigation is to be applauded for effort, it seems that investigations often just investigate, but with no definitive action in cases of sexual assault. Where are the arrests and prosecutions? Where is the deterrent for would be assaulters?
Please keep watching this ongoing issue because we are talking about the safety of our students.
