The Bureau of Justice Statistics' recent National Crime Victimization Survey estimates that people in the U.S. experienced more than 320,000 incidents of rape and sexual assault in 2016. The majority of incidents of abuse are reported by women, but men are also victims, and research suggests men face an even greater stigma in reporting sexual assault than women.

UPDATE: Paige Patterson has resigned from Cedarville University's Board of Trustees, according to a university official.  His name was removed from the school's website Friday. Cedarville spokesperson Clem Boyd told WYSO Patterson's resignation is effective immediately, but declined to comment further.
