Jada Garber, tall and confident, was entering her senior year at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011 when she was forced into a group that she never wanted to join. She became the one out of five women who is sexually assaulted during her time in college.
The man who attacked her, Davin Burke-Reinhart, was convicted on two counts of felony sexual assault in 2012. That made him part of a much more exclusive group. Only about 3 percent of rapists ever spend a day in jail, the Justice Department has found.
What made the difference between Garber's case and thousands of others that aren't successfully prosecuted?
Foremost, the physical forensic evidence collected in the hours after the attack.

By a unanimous vote, a moratorium on any new oil and gas drilling has been extended in Boulder County till 2018. Had there been no decision from the county commissioners, the current moratorium would have expired Jan. 1, 2015.
