Female UVA student reports sexual assault — UVA does not exactly act promptly on the report


    From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:


    CHARLOTTESVILLE — University of Virginia police say they’re investigating a report that a student was sexually assaulted at an on-campus residence hall.

    A letter to students from Police Chief Michael Gibson says the department received information Thursday from the Dean of Students about the allegations.

    The letter says a student reported the assault Jan. 30.

    So — the assault was reported on 30 January and the UVA PD “received information Thursday from the Dean of Students.”  

    Let’s see if I have the timeline correct:

    — assault reported (to Dean of Students ?) on Friday, 30 January

    — Dean’s office finally informs the UVA PD on Thursday, 5 February (6 days after the assault) and here we are at 6 February — that’s a week after the assault was reported (to the Dean?).  

    Has Charlottesville PD been informed?

    Is anyone at the Dean’s office awake?
