Description

An 18-month ongoing investigation by KMGH-TV uncovered systemic failures in the handling of rape cases in Colorado -- from minimal police investigations, to prosecutors only accepting the most clear-cut cases, we found sexual assault victims rarely receive justice and their attackers are rarely held accountable. The investigation led to a new law which requires all rape kits -- both from old cases and new cases -- to be tested, and has led to a greater public awareness of how sexual assault cases are handled in Colorado.
