There are two cases of rape resulting in suicide after publication of photos in the news right now, one from Canada, one from the U.S. 

Anonymous has taken on the Rehtaeh Parson rape case and the massive movement, Unite Against Rape is growing stronger by the day. Rehtaeh Parson, was a 17-year old girl who was gang-raped when she was 15, then scorned and tormented –to death. She committed suicide last week. No one has been charged, but the Nova Scotia authorities, after public outcry, have now reopened the case. Earlier in the week, in desperation and sadness, Rhea’s father reached out for help on a public blog site.

“How is it possible for someone to leave a digital trail like that yet the RCMP don’t have evidence of a crime? What were they looking for if photos and bragging weren’t enough?

Seven months after 15-year-old Audrie Pott posted a grim Facebook message and hanged herself near Santa Clara, California, police arrested three 16-year-old boys on sexual battery charges late Thursday,amid allegations that she was "savagely assaulted by her fellow high school students while she lay on a bed completely unconscious" — only to have cellphone photos of the attack get shared amongst the 1,400 students at Saratoga High School.

Did These Torrington Rape Documents Feed Social Media Victim Shaming?

The arrest warrants for two 18-year-olds accused of raping two 13-year-old girls were unsealed late Friday afternoon, two months after the alleged attack, and they paint a very different picture of what happened than the story we've been hearing from the Torrington police — the same story students have been using to blame the alleged victims.

One more piece of proof that many school administrators, teachers, principals, etc. believe that an athlete is above the law.

it is much more than that.  Administrators are paid to promote the school, not to enhance education, although advancing education can be a promotion.  Mostly they promote athletics and downplay 'issues'.  For this they retain their jobs.  Poor publicity means loss of the job.

Academics is rated very low in schools, including colleges.  More scholarships, endowments, positive publicity are given to athletics, bands, etc, than to scholars.  Unless you are the cream of academia e.g. Ivy League.
