1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about the sexual assault trial of a Stanford University student?


2* How serious a problem is sexual violence at colleges and universities?


3* The Stanford student was convicted of three felony counts for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman at a college party. The student was sentenced to six months in prison with the possibility of an earlier release date. Was this sentence too severe, not severe enough or was it about right?


4* How appropriate is it for politicians to publicly comment on cases like the one involving the Stanford student?
