MU students, staff outraged over flyer

OXFORD, Ohio - Miami University is investigating two students who may be responsible for the rape flyer "The Top Ten Ways to Get Away With Rape" found in the bathroom of McBride Hall on campus two weeks ago.

Spokesperson Claire Wagner said there is an active criminal investigation underway and are working with campus police Chief John McCandless. 

McCandless said they are working with the Butler County Prosecutor's Office on charges, which they hope to have filed by the end of the week.

Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser said a green light has been given constitutionally for an investigation to proceed toward the consideration of criminal charges. 

On the university's end, Wagner said the students' found responsible may have to go through mandatory education programs or even get suspended.

The flier offers suggestions such as putting drugs in a woman's drink, wearing protection and slipping into an unlocked window.
