Miranda Talamantez started this petition to Department of Justice and

My cousin was recently raped just under a year ago by someone she thought was her friend. While she was changing he started masturbating and saying crude things.  When her school found out about this they did nothing. He wasn't even suspended. Instead what they did was tell her that she would be expelled if she spoke up about it. However he constantly talks about it to everyone and no one cares. I looked up rape laws and people who are 16 and above don't get any justice if the rapist is 4 years within their age. Sexual assault has been so normalized that evn her own mother thinks she is making it up. She never even reported it because there is nothing that the justice system will do for her. Her case is just one of many and hardly any are reported. What i want is for the classmate who sexually assaulted her to be prosecuted along with many others. I also want the school system to teach about sexual assault and not just pretend like it doesn't  happen. I know that if we try everything can change. It only takes one match to spread a fire.
