Georgia State Rep. Earl Earhart has won committee approval for legislation that would remove the adjudication of felony sexual assault from campus administrators and return it to law enforcement. The bill would require any college or university employee who is told about a sexual assault that falls under the definition of a felony to report the crime to law enforcement. The actual text of the legislation is quite short, and takes less than a minute to read. Yet still it has been mischaracterized. Ehrhart has made campus due process one of his pet issues and this bill would go a long way toward establishing a system that could produce real justice.
