Southern Oregon University Program Helps Student Who Was Raped Find JusticeDownloadable Video - 2015
By some estimates, nearly one in five women are sexually assaulted on college campuses every year, and many schools are under fire for the way they handle these crimes. But Southern Oregon University hopes to become a national model for how to investigate and adjudicate rape on campus. SOU's "You Have Options" is a unique program that works to break down the barriers so many victims face - guaranteeing confidentiality, giving victims the choice to proceed with a criminal or campus investigation, and most importantly partnering closely with local law enforcement to ensure perpetrators are held accountable. Niki, who was raped by her boyfriend during her junior year, speaks candidly to "20/20" about the school's "You Have Options" program, which she says saved her life. ABC Correspondent Cecilia Vega also speaks to school administrators and the lead detective in Niki's rape case.
