What if it happens to you....

Steps you can take, and resources available in the event you experience sexual assault:

1) Get to a safe place Find a safe environment (friends, family)

2)   Report it: 

Scranton Campus:Contact Public Safety (570) 961-7899 or (570) 241-2022

Satellite Campuses Contact: Police at 911 or the Pennsylvania State Police (570) 963-3156

Reporting the sexual assault is the choice of the victim, and reports may be filed through campus security, local police, and student affairs.  Reports made to campus officials are ensured to remain secure, as the College respects the dignity and worth of the individual and their rights to confidentiality.  

3) Preserve evidence – This may include but is not limited to

  • Do not bathe, change or dispose of clothing, use the restroom, wash your hands, brush your teeth, eat or smoke.
  • If you are still in the location at which the assault occurred, do not clean anything. Write down all the details you can    recall about the assault and the perpetrator

4) Get medical attention:  Seek professional medical attention for treatment of injuries sustained and for prevention of any sexual transmitted diseases that may occur due to the sexual assault.  It is best to report incidences within 72 hours of when they occurred, and to preserve any evidence.  

It is important to get medical attention because besides treatment for observable physical injuries, the possibility of the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) needs to be addressed following a sexual assault.  An individual who has experienced an assault may be unaware of contracting a STD until symptoms appear.  Also, it is possible to get pregnant from a sexual assault, and medical attention can help an individual address this concern.

Sexual Assault is a broad term that encompasses any sexual activity that occurs against someone’s will, without his or her consent. This nonconsensual sexual activity may be obtained through force or threats or verbal coercion, or may occur while the victim is intoxicated. Physical force, however is not necessary for an act to be sexual assault, it is the absence of consent.    
  • Sexual Assault includes rape, as well as attempted rape; also unwanted kissing and fondling are classified as sexual assault.
  • Sexual Assault is strictly prohibited by federal and state law, as such is a punishable criminal offense.
 
Intimate Partner Sexual Assault-  Sexual Assault committed by a person the victim considers to be his/her spouse or intimate partner. 
Non- Intimate Partner Sexual Assault - Sexual Assault committed by everyone else (friend, teacher, landlord, family member, employer, etc.)
 
Sexual Misconduct- Conduct that exploits another person in a sexual and non-consensual way, including, but not limited to non-consensual touching, fondling, or kissing, non-consensual voyeurism, non-consensual recording (audio or visual). non-consensual dissemination of recordings, allowing others to view sexual activities without the consent of all the participants, exposure of one's body in an indecent or lewd manner, or sexual activity in public or semi-public places. Physical force, however is not necessary for an act to be sexual assault, it is the absence of consent.  
 

Sexual Harassment- Unwanted sexual or gender based behavior that creates an environment that would be reasonably perceived by the recipient as hostile, abusive, and or threatening; repeated, unsolicited verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature which is threatening in character. Sexual assault is the most serious form of sexual harassment. 

Gender-Based Harassment- Gender-Based violence and harassment are behaviors that are committed because of a person's gender or sex. They can be carried out by a boyfriend or girlfriend, a date, other kids, or adults. If someone does any of the following to you because of gender or sex, it may constitute gender-based violence or harassment. Someone:

  • follows you around, always wants to know where you are and who you are with, or stalks you
  • pressures you to perform sexual acts
  • touches you sexually against your will
  • forces you to have sex
  • interferes with your birth control
  • verbally abuses you using anti-gay or sex-based insults
  • sends you repeated and unwanted texts, IMs, online messages, and/or phone calls that harass you
  • hits, punches, kicks, slaps, or chokes you
  • verbally or physically threatens you

 

Consent is an active and positive exchange of words or actions that indicate a willingness to participate freely and voluntarily in mutually agreed upon sexual activity. An agreement reached without force or coercion or intimidation between persons.  In the realm of sexual assault, consent is the explicit approval to engage in sexual activity, which is demonstrated via clear actions or words.  The decision to engage in sexual activity must be made freely without coercion, and giving consent to some sexual activities does not imply consent to all sexual activities.

    Consent IS:   

  • Voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity
  • Approval that can be withdrawn at any time

     Consent Is NOT

  • Approval while an individual is incapacitated
  • Past consent as an implication for future consent

  • Silence or absence of resistance

  • Approval as a result of coercion, force, or threat

     

     

     Consent cannot be given if a person is

      • Physically or mentally incapacitated due to alcohol or other drugs – this means if a person is drunk or high, they cannot give consent to engage in sexual activity.

     5 Principles of Consent

      1. Privilege Sex is never a right, it is a privilege.

      2. Permission Since sexual contact is a privilege, you must have permission every time.

      3. Justification There is never a good enough excuse to violate another’s boundaries.

      4. IntentTo ensure that sexual boundaries are not crossed, your intent must be to “First, do no harm.”

      5. Responsibility You are entirely responsible for your own actions. Persons who experience sexual assault never bear the responsibility of harm caused by others.

    Intimate Partner Sexual Violence: a sexual assault that is committed by a person considered to be a spouse or intimate partner

    Domestic Violence: asserted violent misdemeanor and felony offenses committed by the victim’s current or former spouse, current of former cohabitant, person similarly situated under domestic or family violence law, or anyone else protected under domestic or family violence law

    Dating Violence: Violence committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim is dating violence. Whether there was such a relationship will be gauged by its length, type, and frequency of interaction

    Stalking: a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to fear for her, his, or others’ safety, or to suffer substantial emotional distress

    Responsible Employee: college employee who has the authority to redress sexual violence, who has the duty to report incidents of sexual violence or other student misconduct, or who a student could reasonably believe has this authority or duty

    Victim Blaming may occur after a sexual assault, and puts some of the responsibility (if not all of it) of the sexual assault on the victim.   Victim Blaming is often the  result of faulty rape myths that people believe, which help to perpetuate and justify sexual assault and aggression.  This may be exemplified by the perception that if the victim did not put him/herself in a vulnerable situation, e.g. drinking alcohol, he/she would not have become a victim.  These attitudes marginalize the victim and make it harder for him or her to come forward and report the abuse. If the survivor knows that society blames him or her for the abuse, she/he will not feel safe or comfortable coming forward.  

    Victim Blaming attitudes convey a message that the victim is at fault.  However, it is not the victim’s fault, and it is not the victim’s responsibility to fix the situation.  Committing a sexual assault is a choice made by the perpetrator; as such he/she is accountable and responsible for the actions and consequences, and deserving of the blame.   By engaging in Victim Blaming   and believing rape myths, society allows the abuser to perpetrate sexual assault while avoiding accountability for his actions

Role Alcohol Plays in Sexual Assaults

Many campus sexual assaults involve alcohol.

  • Alcohol use can impair a perpetrator’s judgment so he/she disregards indications that a person doesn’t want to engage in sexual activity.
  • Alcohol use can impair a victim’s judgment so he/she is less likely to take heed of risk cues.
  • Alcohol use can increase the expectancy of what will happen when we drink.
  • Perpetrators may use alcohol as an excuse for their actions.

Keep all of these in mind when making choices about alcohol.

 

 

Just because you help her home, doesn't mean you get to help yourself.

Alcohol and other drugs play a major role in intimate partner violence as well as the majority of sexual assaults in college environments, as a person under the influence cannot legally give consent.

Alcohol consumption among college students is quite prevalent in the United States, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (2013), roughly four out of five college students consume alcohol. Alcohol is a depressant that impairs inhibitions, judgment, and decision-making and is by far the most frequently used drug to facilitate sexual assault. Because alcohol consumption impairs an individual’s judgment, it may increase the likelihood of committing a sexual assault, and also may decrease the ability to withhold or give consent. 

Remember:

o Drinking is a socially acceptable activity used as an excuse for a socially unacceptable behavior.

o Alcohol results in cognitive impairments

o Consent must be present in healthy relationships.

o Intoxicated persons cannot give consent More than 696,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 were assaulted by another student who was drinking. (HIngson, Zha, and Weitzman, 2009)

About 85-90 percent of sexual assaults reported by college students involve alcohol use by one or both parties and were committed by someone who was known to the survivor. (National Institute of Justice, 2008).

 

 

Date Rape Drugs

Drugs Commonly Used for Sexual Assault also known as Date Rape Drugs

Rohypnol – Also known as roofies, rophies, roche, or forget-me pill.  It is a strong sleeping, anti-anxiety pill in the same family of drugs as Valium and Xanax.  It is often found as a small, round, white pill that looks like aspirin, and dissolves in liquids.  Detection in a liquid is difficult because once dissolved it is odorless and tasteless.

Effects:  Physical effects may be noticeable within 20 minutes and may last up to 24 hours.  Causes drowsiness, confusion, nausea, impaired motor skills, dizziness, disorientation, impaired judgment, and reduced levels of consciousness.  A person under the influence of Rohypnol may appear drunk, with slurred speech and difficulty walking/standing.  Rohypnol can also cause memory loss of the events that occurred after ingestion.

GHB – Also known as G, liquid ecstasy, grievous bodily harm, scoop, and Georgia homeboy.  It is a powerful synthetic sedative, and is often found as a liquid with a salty taste, however, it can also be found in powder form. 

Effects may be felt within 20 minutes, and last from 2 to 6 hours 

Effects: Lowers blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing.  Causes dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, confusion, excessive perspiration, intense drowsiness, and seizures.  May cause unconsciousness or a coma, as a result, an individual under the influence of GHB may not be able to recall what happened after ingestion.

Ketamine – Also known as K, Special K, ket, vitamin K, and cat valium.  It is labeled as a general anesthetic, and used as an animal tranquilizer.  It has sedative, hypnotic, stimulant, and hallucinogenic properties.  It can be found as a powder or a pill.  Its effects can begin within minutes, and last up to 5 hours. Effects:  It can cause dizziness, confusion, disorientation, memory loss, hallucination, agitation, impaired motor skills, slurred speech, numbness, aggressive or violent behavior, high blood pressure, and potentially fatal respiratory failure.  Often times individuals may feel detached from their bodies and surroundings, and may cause a sensation of wanting to move but being unable to do so (“K-Hole”).  Can also cause depression and amnesia

Scopolamine – It is a depressant, which acts on the central nervous system.  Often times it is prescribed as a transdermal patch for travel sickness.  It is highly toxic, and can be used in tiny doses.  It is often found in tablet form or as a patch.  The drug may take effect within 30 minutes, and effects can also last 2-3 days

Effects:  Decreases secretion of fluids, slowing the stomach and intestines, and dilation of pupils.  Causes drowsiness, dizziness, restlessness, blurred vision, difficulty urinating, dry or itchy eyes, and accelerated heartbeat.   Overdose can cause delirium, delusions, paralysis, stupor, and death.  An individual who has been drugged with Scopolamine may appear to be in the midst of a psychotic episode, and often end up in police custody or admitted to a hospital.
