Studies have found that about one out of every five women in college, and one out of every eighteen men, experiences a sexual assault or similar misconduct. Other research indicates that as many as 56 percent of girls and 40 percent of boys in grades seven through twelve are sexually harassed, with nearly one-third of the harassment taking place online.
Deputy Attorney General Marie Soueid and Assistant Attorney General Glenn J. Moramarco handled the matter for the Department of Law & Public Safety, with assistance from Deputy Attorneys General Donna S. Arons and Lauren Jensen.
