Rape kit processing

Rape Kit.jpg

I am proud that during my time representing you our state has dedicated funding to process the enormous backlog of untested rape kits.  We also have set up a tracking system so survivors can see where their case is in the process. We are finding that even the oldest kits are resulting in identification   of serial rapists, getting good conviction rates and helping to get dangerous predators off the streets and out of our communities.  This is a national shame and there is more to be done. There is unused capacity at our local crime lab and new technology to further this work. I will continue to fight for sexual assault survivors.
