STANFORD (KCBS)— Hundreds of students turned out at Stanford University to demand tougher punishments in sexual assault cases. A Stanford senior, who says she was raped earlier this year, is furious her alleged attacker is being allowed to graduate from the University.

On Thursday, students marched on the Vice Provost’s office and chanted “Get on board” as part of their rally cry. Senior, Leah Francis, claims she was raped by her classmate last January.

Protesters said they want Stanford to provide adequate resources for survivors of rape and sexual assault on campus.

The university said the alleged attacker will be suspended from grad school for five quarters, but only after he walks during the commencement ceremony next week.

The case remains open in Alaska, where the alleged incident happened. No charges in the case have been filed by police.
