Sexual crimes are among the most devastating of crimes. Through these horrible criminal acts, sex crime offenders can inflict severe physical, emotional, and psychological trauma on their victims. The effects can be long-lasting.
The District Attorney’s Office understands this and vigorously seeks justice for victims of sexual assault.
Because many sexual assailants are repeat offenders, it is important that victims report sexual assaults to their local police or to the JPSO. By reporting crimes, victims help bring an attacker to justice and prevent further offenses.
