Sexual assault on college campuses was already a heavily discussed topic.  Then came the Brock Turner case at Stanford.

Turner admitted raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster after a campus party; blamed drinking, peer pressure, and promiscuity... and got six months in jail. 

Now calls for the judge's removal are being made, while universities work to establish policies on handling sexual assault causes. 

Stanford law professor and sociologist Michele Landis Dauber, who is a member of a committee seeking the judge's recall, shares her thoughts on what should be done in such cases. 

University of Oregon psychology professor Jennifer Freyd also weighs in. 

Information at hand includes a new report on sexual assault reporting at universities across the country.
