Question 5: A freshman student at the University (Jane Smith) goes out to a local bar off of campus after mid term exams. While there she meets a guy name Jack Johnson. Johnson is studying at the local community college. He is looking to transfer to the university where Jane Smith attends after he finishes at the community college. He is at the community college to start because he cannot afford the University tuition at this time.

 

While at the bar Jane becomes intoxicated and wanders away from her friends. Jack follows her and offers to take her home. She is initially hesitant but agrees. Hours later, Jane wakes up in a strange motel and is not wearing any pants. She goes to call 911 believing she has been raped but the sim card has been removed from her phone. She uses the phone in the room to call 911.

 

Police respond to the scene and Jane is transported to the hospital for a SANE /SAFE exam. Police process the crime scene in the hotel room and gather evidence including the bedding and a used condom.

 

The case eventually leads to the arrest of Johnson for sexual assault. He is indicted and convicted for the sexual assault. Smith files a civil suit against Johnson for the sexual assault and that suit is pending.

 

A year after the incident, Smith is walking through the courtyard of the school and she comes face to face with Johnson who has transferred to the University from the community college, like he originally planned. Smith immediately notifies the school administration that her rapist is on campus.

 

The university launches an investigation and learns that Johnson just started this past semester as a transfer student. He has been awarded pell grants and financial aide. The school is dragging its feet on the case afraid of denying Johnson an education. The school claims it is being very in depth in the investigation while it is taking its time. During this time Jane notices that she is getting looked at differently by people on campus and pointed at. There are also different postings showing up on social media with indirect references to her.

 

While the university is conducting its investigation a sexual assault occurs but the suspect is unknown. The suspect matches the description of Johnson only slightly. In this case no evidence was recovered. The victim did report that the sim card from her phone was missing and she could not use it.

 

Answer and Explain the following:

 

Identify risk factors associated with this scenario.

Identify a victimology of Jane Smith.

Identify a suspect profile and characterization of Jack Johnson.

Identify additional steps to take in the investigation.

Identify any violations that have been committed regarding Title IX, if any.

Identify the responsibility the school has at this point, if any.

There is a hidden clue in here that you should try to investigate and identify. It is right in front of you but we did not really discuss it. I know everyone of you can figure it out.
