This module is designed to directly confront the difficult question of false reporting. This will require challenging some of the “red flags” that often raise suspicion among criminal justice professionals and members of the general public, yet nonetheless represent the realistic dynamics of sexual assault crimes. By doing so, we will try to answer those questions that have historically created a bigger hurdle for sexual assault victims than any lack of training or experience on the part of law enforcement professionals. We can then move on to successfully investigate and prosecute non-stranger sexual assaults.
