U.Va. president: Sexual assault polices examined

UVA-LogoCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan says the university will re-examine its policy of allowing sexual assault victims to decide whether to prosecute. She also said officials will evaluate the system of allowing the student-run judiciary to decide whether an assault has occurred. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1vLdJdF ) that Sullivan made the remarks Monday in a speech to about 25 students that was live-streamed as the university deals with outrage over a Rolling Stone article that described a gang rape at a U.Va. fraternity house that was not prosecuted. Last month, Sullivan canceled all fraternity and sorority activities until the start of the spring semester. Sullivan said she met with Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo over the weekend to discuss whether U.Va.’s “victim-centered approach” strikes the wrong balance.
