USC Announces Changes to Amnesty Policy

USC students said the new policy is good for protecting sexual assault victims.

USC announced major changes to its amnesty policy Tuesday.

Dr. Ainsley Carry sent out an email to the student body outlining the new rules:

"Those who report sexual misconduct, or participate as witnesses in sexual misconduct investigation, or seek medical assistance for themselves or another will not be subject to disciplinary sanctions for their consumption of alcohol or other substances."

USC students said the new poilcy is good for protecting victims of sexual assault. Many believe this will make it easier for them to report crimes and get medical attention, without getting themselves in trouble.

This new policy applies to all students who report incidents to residential advisors, Department of Public Safety officers, and 911 operators.
