Cutler researchers helping to understand and improve Maine's criminal justice response to survivors of sexual assault

Muskie researchers helping to understand and improve Maine's criminal justice response to survivors of sexual assault and improve the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault cases. A new report from the Cutler Institute's Justice Policy Program area includes comprehensive data about the current status of sexual assault kits in Maine; the challenges and successes of processing and storing them, and nationally recognized best practices. Based on these findings, researchers provided ten recommendations to the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Pending legislation relevant to the study includes: LD 67 -An Act to Ensure Access to Justice for Victims of Sexual Assault (sponsored by Senator Herbig) LD 396 -An Act To Support Justice for Victims of Sexual Assault by Increasing the Time Sexual Assault Forensic Examination Kits Must Be Stored (sponsored by Representative Maxmin) LD 1140 –An Act to Improve the Investigation and Prosecution of Sexual Assault Cases (sponsored by Representative Madigan)
