Sex crimes typically get prominent play in the media, but many journalists don’t delve into the systemic issues of how criminal justice agencies and the military handle allegations and investigations. Among the issues to be discussed in this panel are how Florida released hundreds of sexually violent predators who attacked again; why much of the evidence in “rape kits” may go untested and prosecution rates are low; how 20 states can spend large sums confining sex offenders indefinitely, and how military sex-assault victims face retaliation and accusations of mental illness.
