Ramsay County Sexual Assault Systems Review

Article or Report | April 27, 2017
Author: Other

Favorite Favorite

Traditionally, sexual offending within communities has only been reported to criminal justice authorities by small percentages of victims/survivors. Sexual assault cases present unique challenges
to police and prosecutors seeking to hold offenders accountable. Therefore, it is imperative that our systems perform at their best in addressing these serious crimes.

In April 2016, Ramsey County took a public stand, committing to improve our community’s response to sexual assaults by launching a Start by Believing campaign to change our culture so victims/survivors feel empowered to report their abuse. Also, in order to examine how the system currently responds to sexual assault cases, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi dedicated an experienced prosecutor to review the practices of criminal justice professionals. For two years, she
reviewed police reports, prosecutor cases and interviewed professionals and victims/survivors to understand the current response. This report details the findings from that review and recommends key investments to make and practices to change to improve the system for victims of sexual assault and bring offenders to justice.

Many states require medical personnel to make a report to law enforcement and/or social services following treatment of a child, elderly person or vulnerable adult who was the victim of a crime. Although most states do not per se require medical personnel to make a report when they have treated a rape victim who is a competent adult, other state statutes may have the impact of requiring that a report be made.

Rape Is…

Video | January 1, 2003
Author: Other

Favorite Favorite

“Rape is…,” a half-hour documentary video, explores the meaning and consequences of rape. This documentary looks at rape from a global and historical perspective, but focuses mainly on the domestic cultural conditions that make this human rights violation the most underreported crime in America. Many types of sexual assault are not considered a serious crime by the legal system and our society refuses to see the true cost of this brutal denial of basic rights. “Rape is…” expands the narrow ways we think of sexual violence, and demonstrates that it is not a sporadic and rare occurrence, but a cultural and criminal outrage that affects millions of women, children and men all over the world.
