Prosecutor who filed false rape case against student faces new challenger

Article here. Excerpt:

'A University of Kansas law professor whose student was charged last year with making a false rape report has filed to run for the office of the prosecutor who eventually dropped the charge amid intense pressure.

Suzanne Valdez said she believes Douglas County District Attorney, Charles Branson has been “asleep at the wheel,” The Kansas City Star reports.

Valdez, the former president of University Senate at KU and special prosecutor in Wyandotte County, said she hopes to address “systemic and cultural” issues, placing a focus on victim needs.

She told The Star last year that law enforcement in Lawrence failed to protect women.'
