And they're deathly afraid of what may happen next. Seefeld, a Minnesota native and the mother of four sons, knows what they're going through. Six years ago, she was one of those parents. Now she's on a mission to help other families in that same "horrific" spot, as the co-founder and president of Families Advocating for Campus Equality FACEa support group for the accused. But on college campuses today, she says, the innocent have as much to fear as the guilty.
In the midst of a national outcry over campus rape, she says, students are being labeled sex offenders based on little more than an accusation.Fargo - Lorne Malvo interrogation Scene HD
Not one to mince words, she compares the atmosphere to Salem witch trials. Even mention the rights of the accused, she says, and "there are people who are trying to twist that to, 'Oh, you're trying to protect rapists. As a lifelong feminist, Seefeld, who grew up in Anoka, admits that she probably wouldn't have believed this six years ago. But now, she's convinced that the crackdown on sexual assault is creating a new class of victims.
In some ways, Seefeld says, her son was lucky. The police didn't believe his accuser's story.
But the University of North Dakota did. In Januarya female student reported that she'd been sexually assaulted weeks before by Caleb Warner, then a year-old business major. The university promptly launched an investigation, and Warner, who said the sex was consensual, was summoned to a campus hearing.

One claim, that she had seen a "Little Caesar's" through his bedroom window, was ruled out by police; they found the couldn't be seen from his room. In Mayauthorities took the unusual step of accusing the accuser of lying. She was charged with filing a false police report, and when she left the state, a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Six years later, that warrant is still pending. Yet the university stood by its suspension, refusing to reopen his case. Seefeld was incredulous. She started "marching up and down the state," telling the story to lawmakers, state officials and anyone who would listen. Still, it took more than a year, and the threat of a lawsuit, before the university backed down and lifted Warner's punishment. The university declined to comment, citing privacy laws. Her son never went back to school. But Seefeld had found a new cause. Inshe ed with two other mothers with similar stories to found FACE, the support group.
