Rights of Victims of Sexual Assault

You have the right to report to law enforcement or not report to law enforcement. Victims under the age of 18 may not report anonymously. This means that you may still receive advocacy services and a medical exam, including evidence collection, but it will NOT be reported to law enforcement unless you want it to be. You may report the crime up to five years later.
