Forensic Evidence and Criminal Justice Outcomes in a Statewide Sample of Sexual Assault cases.
I believe this will be useful and interesting for anyone in the CJ system who works sexual assault cases or with sexual assault data. I am also cross-posting this to the RAD-L because there are implications for RAD instructors who often work with SANE nurses and academics who study the dynamics of sexual assault.
Despite our many advances in forensic evidence collection techniques and the technology used to process that evidence there is still a lot that we don’t actually know.
This presentation was recorded at this months meeting of the Massachusetts Association of Crime Analysts, which was held at Fisher College in Boston.
I would recommend turning your computer volume up and adjusting the audio properties of the presentation. The slides are controlled by a dropdown on the upper right. The presentation really starts at about 6 minutes and 40 seconds in.


I can tell you that this research could have an impact on the criminal justice system in regards to how “Rape Kits” are processed, collected and used within the criminal justice system.

Special thanks to Fisher College and to MACA members Alex Wagner of Fisher College and Dan Bibel of the Mass. State police Crime Reporting Unit.
