EVAWI Training Bulletin: Raped, Then Jailed: The Risks of Prosecution for Falsely Reporting Sexual Assault
In this article, we focus on the scenario where victims summon the courage to report a sexual assault, only to be disbelieved, mistreated, and later charged (often erroneously) with false reporting or associated crimes such as obstruction of justice, interfering with law enforcement, or providing false statements. Some have even been charged with a felony crime of evidence tampering, for obtaining a medical forensic examination. In other words, the evidence they are accused of tampering with is their very own body.
