1. According to the article she was 16 when it happened.

She may have declined to press charges but we don't know if the police or DA also discouraged her from pursing the case. Date rape can be hard to prove and a 16 year old may not have been up to the fight. Besides, there's no way of knowing if he would have been convicted and even if he had been, chances are he would have done something like this eventually.
I hope this young woman has a support group that won't let her take on the responsibility for this.
