Date rape is one of the unreported crimes in America, and I have seen this short film in a criminal justice class that was an elective before getting my baccalaurate degree in 1997. The young woman was victimized twice, and felt victimized by the second incident when the acquaintance forced himself upon her. The first time that the alleged sexual assault took place was after a few bottles of champagne, and details the dark myth of alcohol abuse and sexual assault. The 1990s might be deemed as the decade of the woman, since stalking, date rape, and sexual harassment have been portrayed by the media and how laws can be changed.
The university kept the date rape as an internal matter, and Katie Koestner's story might be one out of a million where women have gone public about how date rape is never brought before a court of law. The conclusion, with the REAL Katie Koestner, was based on actual statistics, and how others should do when sexual assault is dealt with. Not all cases are prosecuted, since a lot of rape cases are either dismissed and/or tried in a court of law.
