Q What are converted cases?
A What are converted cases?

This is the term used to describe a sexual assault case where the victim had a medical forensic examination but was initially unsure about whether or not to participate in the criminal justice process. For victims who later decide that they will participate in the criminal justice process, this is described as ‘converting’ to a standard reporting process. At that point, the case may be handled like any other report coming in to law enforcement following the traditional path.

For military personnel, this will refer to a sexual assault case that begins with a restricted report and later converts to an unrestricted report (whether this is voluntary on the part of the victim or involuntarily, against the victim’s wishes).
