Description: 

The National Center for Victims of Crime, with funding from the Office on Violence Against Women, announces a new webinar in a series addressing untested sexual assault kits: Into the Lab: Mandatory Testing of Sexual Assault Kits. Illinois (in 2009) and Texas (in 2011) enacted state laws mandating the testing of sexual assault kits (SAKs). Both laws required audits of the untested sexual assault kits that had languished for years in evidence storage rooms as well as timely testing of all sexual assault kits moving forward. This webinar, presented by Cara Smith and Torie Camp, will describe how the Illinois and Texas laws came about, key aspects of both states' laws, results of the statewide audits, and impact of the laws on the criminal justice system and victims of sexual assault. Speakers will discuss barriers to passage of these laws, challenges to implementation, and wish lists for improvement.If you have any questions about this Webinar, please email Ilse Knecht or Torie Camp, or by phone at 512-940-6932.
