U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen came to UNH on Monday to ask University researchers and local law enforcement what the US Armed Forces Committee can learn about sexual assault from the civilian community. She says she’s hoping the information will help inform her colleagues as they shape sexual assault policies in the 2014 Military Defense Authorization Act.
I think we will get a good bill past.
But, Shaheen says, the question is whether the committee will require that sex crimes be investigated by non-military prosecutors.
