Overzealous Prosecution Of Campus Sex Crimes
The Texas justice system is not lenient with sex offenders. Nor should it be. Sexual assaults and related crimes are serious offenses, and their perpetrators ought to be held to account.
Yet, at times, police and other authorities are overzealous in their pursuit of sex offenders. This is particularly problematic on college campuses. Individuals accused of misbehavior are treated as criminals before the legal process has unfolded. In many cases, the accused will be disciplined – suspended or expelled from an institution, for example – before a formal investigation has even begun.
