STUDY: How Title IX Sex Assault Injustice Operates: The Accused Rights Are Erased

William Blackstone declared, “It is better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer.” In 2011, the U.S. Department of Education took a different position.  They decreed that Title IX sex tribunals should embrace a weaker “preponderance of the evidence” standard.  So how high a risk of false conviction do the innocent face under the OCR’s Title IX guidance standards?  UCLA Professor John Villasenor set out to answer that in a study that uses probability theory to model false Title IX convictions under the preponderance of the evidence standard. What he found should take all fair-minded Americans aback. By Ronald Bailey
