TITLE IX Coordinators Offered Good, Bad & Ugly Outlook for Due Process
In the years following 2011, students accused of sexual assault have seen their due process rights eviscerated and their presumption of innocence ignored. Meanwhile, the definition of sexual assault has been expanded to include pretty much anything. The panelists who met on Capitol Hill last week aimed to provide fairness in their hearings, but rarely mentioned due process or fairness during the panel discussion….Outside of campus culture, men and women who face the risk of real sexual assault are forced to use the criminal justice system, where both accuser and accused have due process rights -apparently a terrible thing, according to activists, administrators and federal regulators.
