Dept. of Education Investigates Penn State

The accuracy of sex assault reports at Penn State University in State College has the U.S. Department of Education taking a closer look at the reports. The Department notified the university by letter last Thursday of an investigation that it will conduct. A report shows that reported forcible sex offenses increased during the time when the Jerry Sandusky scandal was unfolding in 2011. However, a University report documented 56 forcible sex assaults on campus in 2012, twice the 2011 numbers. The investigation will try to determine if some reports were not accurately reported in an effort to keep the numbers low. The Clery Act, a 1990 law, named after 19-year-old Jeanne Cleary, who was raped and murdered in her campus hall at Lehigh university in 1986, requires colleges and universities to report campus crimes to the Federal Government.
