Physical and Sexual Assault of Women With Disabilities

Articles or Reports | September 1, 2006
Author: Other

North Carolina women were surveyed to examine whether women’s disability status was associated with their risk of being assaulted within the past year. Women’s violence experiences were classified into three groups: no violence, physical assault only (without sexual assault), and sexual assault (with or without physical assault). Multivariable analysis revealed that women with disabilities were not significantly more likely than women without disabilities to have experienced physical assault alone within the past year (odds ratio [OR] = 1.18, 95% Confidence Interval [CI] = 0.62 to 2.27); however, women with disabilities had more than 4 times the odds of experiencing sexual assault in the past year compared to women without disabilities (OR = 4.89, 95% CI = 2.21 to 10.83).

Articles or Reports | March 1, 2015
Author: Other

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) has revolutionized crime scene investigation. Infertility literature benchmarks provide evidence that DNA exists longer in reproductive tracks than general forensic studies historically demonstrate. The result is for most rape victims, timing for evidence collection is limited jurisdictionally to three days, even though recent literature describes novel advancements in Y-STR analysis methods, which is now customary in many forensic laboratories.

As more victims of IPV come into contact with criminal justice agencies than any other set of agencies, we review the role of criminal justice and court agencies in responding to IPV.

We seek to include what it is important for victim advocates and service providers to know about the criminal justice and court response to IPV so that they can guide and assist their clients who must deal with these agencies.

Preventing and Responding to Corrections-Based Sexual Assault: A Guide for Community Corrections Professionals

Tools & Templates | December 1, 2009
Author:

This document provides guidance to community corrections officials, both supervisors and line staff, regarding the prevention, reduction, detection, and punishment of sexual misconduct perpetrated on those under supervision of community corrections, whether that misconduct occurs within facilities or under community supervision. One useful way of thinking about the targeted population is to consider the exposure of persons to sexual misconduct in any of the following settings: prisons, jails, juvenile detention centers, or halfway houses; on parole, probation, pretrial release, or bail; in a day reporting center, pretrial diversion program, as well as a drug, mental health, or other specialty court; on community service, or under any supervision through a private provider.

Preventing and Responding to Domestic & Sexual Violence in Later Life

Articles or Reports | June 1, 2016
Author:

This special collection brings together selected materials related to preventing and responding to elder abuse and abuse in later life. It draws from the work of the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), National Adult Protective Services Agency (NAPSA) and other organizations. By focusing specifically on domestic and sexual violence (DV/SV) in later life, this special collection highlights the complexities of older people’s DV/SV experiences and emphasizes collaborative and multi-pronged approaches to addressing DV/SV in later life. Accordingly, the materials included in this special collection have been organized by their relevance to key stakeholders. Although particular effort was made to include materials related to addressing elder abuse and abuse in later life in diverse groups of older people, very few materials in this special collection focus on elder abuse and abuse in later life within culturally diverse communities. This limitation is due to significant gaps in current literature.
