University of Southern California students  claim in a federal complaint that the school has ignored or mishandled dozens of  sexual assault cases, including one case in which a woman was allegedly told by  campus police that her rape report was groundless because the assailant did not  orgasm.

‘Because he stopped, it was not rape,’ the  student was allegedly told by a Department of Public Safety detective, according  to the complaint, which details similar stories from more than 100 other  students.

‘Even though his penis penetrated your  vagina, because he stopped, it was not a crime,’ the detective allegedly said.  As a result, the woman’s case was not referred to the Los Angeles Police  Department, the complaint says.

Tucker Reed, 23, who is a theater major at USC, says her ex-boyfriend raped her in December 2010. When she took her claims to university officials in December 2012, she said her case was not properly investigated

The U.S. Department of Education is launching  a federal investigation into the woman’s claims, along with the dozens of other  allegations lodged against the school in the 110-page complaint. USC official  Jody Shipper says the school will cooperate with federal officials on the  inquiry.

Several students behind the complaint held a  press conference Monday to talk about their cases.

‘The process made me feel raped a second  time,’ said Tucker Reed, 23, who is a theater major at USC.

 

Reed says her ex-boyfriend raped her in  December 2010. When she took her claims to university officials in December  2012, she said her case was not properly investigated and that it was eventually  dismissed.

She says she had presented detectives with  evidence of the assault, including a recording in which her alleged attacker  admitted to the crime.

Another student, Ariella Mostov, said  officials ignored her claims that she was sexually assaulted and that  afterwards, she was forced attend classes with the suspect for an entire semester.

‘USC was unwilling to make any accommodations  for me,’ she said, her voice shaking with emotion. ‘I  was outraged.’

When another student went to the school’s  Department of Public Safety to report a sexual assault at a fraternity event, an  officer told her and a friend that women should not ‘go out, get drunk and  expect not to get raped,’ according to the complaint.

The federal investigation is the latest in a  series of inquiries into whether colleges are complying with the guidelines of  Title IX, a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in  education.

Similar complaints have been filed against  other schools around the nation, including Occidental College, UC Berkeley,  Dartmouth, Swarthmore and Yale.
