On an average, what percentage of college/university students get charged or convicted for sexual crimes ?

Asked over 1 year ago - Houston, TX

For sexual crimes such as stalking, aggravated harassment, criminal intimidation/threats, coercion, blackmail etc. The reports /articles on the net report dismal numbers, as in perpetrators, especially if they are male college students go scot-free. Are female college students really that unsafe or is there a general misreporting ? My question is for the country as a whole.
