Police have an obligation to investigate all accusations. However, when accusations involve claims of sexual assault, it may not always be easy for authorities to gain sufficient evidence to gain a conviction. Although details of an alleged incident between two students at a private school are unclear, police have recently arrested a private school student in Georgia and charged him with rape.
According to reports, the alleged victim sought treatment at a hospital. Hospital staff then contacted police. Police say that an investigation -- including interviews with the victim as well as other parties -- led them to believe that there is probable cause to make an arrest and file charges.
