Santa Clara District Attorney: No Charges Filed for Alleged Sexual Assault at Stanford University (CA Penal Code 243.4)

The Santa Clara District Attorney has decided not to file charges against a Stanford University graduate for alleged sexual assault  (CA Penal Code 243.4). 

Prosecutors with the Santa Clara District Attorney’s office have deemed that there is insufficient evidence to charge the student.  It is the duty of a District Attorney to only charge cases they feel they can win at trial. 

Govinda Dasu was arrested on Sept. 24 after officers were called to his room.

Given the recent changes in law as well as the general atmosphere in San Jose around sexual assaults involving Stanford students, we truly respect the District Attorney’s decision to file charges given emotional and political pressure. 

Meanwhile, the witch hunt against Judge Perski in Palo Alto continues.  This time for another Judge’s decision to allow a student another chance to complete the Domestic Violence counselling Judge Persky ordered him to complete. 

This is the state of the law in Santa Clara.
