NPR highlights struggle of wrongly accused students

It's taken five years, but National Public Radio finally seems to recognize the consequences of campus sexual assault hysteria.

In an article titled "For students accused of campus rape, legal victories win back rights," NPR describes how the pendulum has swung against accused students.

"As colleges crack down on sexual assault, some students complain that the schools are going too far and trampling the rights of the accused in the process," wrote Tovia Smith. "In recent months, courts around the nation have offered some of those students significant victories, slamming schools for systems that are stacked against the accused."

One student who spoke to NPR said "Once you are accused, you're guilty." Another told the station that "We used to not be fair to women on this issue," but now, "we're on the other extreme, not being fair to guys."

NPR spoke to a University of California-San Diego student who recently had his expulsion ruled "unfair" by a state judge.
