It was just another night at college; at least that is what Jackie Reilly thought. A couple of girls and guys hanging out upstairs in a fraternity house together on the first night back sophomore year after a long summer apart. Jackie arrived back early to Syracuse University’s campus because she was a peer advisor participating in freshmen orientation. That night, she accepted a drink that she did not see poured. The bottom of a white Styrofoam cup and the contour of her rapist’s body in the background was her last memory.
