Activists decry no-jail sentence for former frat president

 

December 12, 2018



HOUSTON — In a case with echoes of the furor involving a Stanford University swimmer two years ago, advocates for sex-crime victims say the plea bargain that enabled a former Baylor University fraternity president to stay out of jail is another failure by the legal system.

"What's similar is that violence against women is not taken seriously by the legal system," said Michele Dauber, a Stanford law professor who led the successful campaign to recall the judge in the swimmer's case. "The handling of sexual assault in the criminal justice system has been inappropriate, and sort of shockingly so, for a really long time."
