My daughter was sexually assaulted at Bridgewater College this past February. She reported the assault to the College police and went through a judicial process at the college in which the board found the assailant not responsible.

Why is the college hiding sexual assault charges?

My daughter went through the exact same process with the same results and no explanation of why. After leaving the college and 7 months of counseling my daughter has been attending another college. She now speaks out against assaults on women and hold seminars on campus to help students understand the traumas of sexual assault. I wish we had dealt with this assault with the Bridgewater police department as colleges care more about their reputations than the lifelong effect this has on the victim. I wrote a letter to the President of Bridgewater State and never received a response. I have also talked to several crisis counselors at different colleges and they all tell the same story of how surprised one would be to find out how often this happens on campus. I feel sorry for what you as a parent have to go through and especially what your daughter has to endure.

I don't know what went on in your area, but when it happened in my town it turned out that the rapist was the son of someone high up in the school's administration. In one case he was caught on video but the school still declined to prosecute. Something to consider, at least.

Are you referring to Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, Mass. I am a professor there who has long suspected this goes on. I have ties to both the campus and regional media and would be able to assure you discretion if you could provide me with some additional details.

Of course. Just very concerned about the problem and want to examine it from all angles. Think false accusations can be just as damaging for people involved.
