Ohio college may discipline students for flier

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio college says it has identified two male students believed to be responsible for posting an offensive flier about rape in a coed dorm bathroom.

Miami University in southwest Ohio didn’t release any information on the students, citing federal student privacy restrictions.

If the students are found responsible, they could face discipline including suspension and sensitivity training. They also could face criminal charges.

The flier was titled “The Top 10 Ways to Get Away with Rape.”

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that a student organization that works to prevent sexual assaults criticized university officials for not notifying students on campus.

The university says the flier didn’t merit a campuswide alert because it didn’t pose an immediate threat. It had mandatory sexual-assault counseling at the residence hall.
