Disclosures to Alleged Victims of Crimes of Violence or Non-Forcible Sex Offenses
When a sexual offense results in a disciplinary proceeding, both accuser and accused have certain rights. The accuser and the accused are entitled the same opportunity to have others present during a disciplinary proceeding. Both the accuser and the accused must be informed of the outcome of any institutional disciplinary proceeding that is brought alleging a sex offense.
Upon request, Public Safety, will disclose to the alleged victim of a crime of violence, or a non-forcible sex offense, the results of any disciplinary hearing conducted by the College against the student who is the alleged perpetrator of the crime or offense. If the alleged victim is deceased as a result of the crime or offense, MCW will provide the results of the disciplinary hearing to the victim’s next of kin, if so requested.
Sex Offender Registry
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000 requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community on how to obtain information provided by the State concerning registered sex offenders. It also required sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student.
The Wisconsin Department of Corrections maintains a Sex Offender Registry. The site contains detailed program information and an offender search capability by offender name or specific location.
