Description

A five-month Bee investigation finds that "reports of rapes and sexual assaults at University of California campuses are seldom made public each year despite a decade-old federal law created to force colleges to do so." Bee reporters found that several UC campuses violated the federal campus crime reporting law, called the Clery Act. "The result: annual crime reports provided to students and parents that create a misleading portrayal of safety at UC campuses." While the nine UC campuses reported 60 forcible sex offenses in 1998, including rapes, the Bee discovered "at least 190 cases of rape and forcible sex offenses...The figure is by no means comprehensive." UC Irvine and UC Riverside sidestepped the more stringent reporting requirements of the Clery Act by using FBI statistics.
