The University takes situations like this very seriously and has a number of resources for survivors of sexual assault available 24-hours a day.

UPDATE September 1: No charges are being filed by the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office in this case. According to an email received by the Mad River Union, “We reviewed the case and did not file charges,” stated DA Maggie Fleming in an email. “We cannot ethically bring charges unless we believe there is sufficient admissible evidence that would prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.”
