LITERATURE REVIEW: PART II2AbstractMen and women have faced the terrible issue of being victimized through sexual assault.The bigger issue comes from law enforcement neglecting to follow through with rape kits thathave been performed on these persons. The extended period that goes by before rape kits aretested is completely unacceptable. This retraumatizes the victims. The study will show thatwomen more than men are revictimized by the blatant disregard for the evidence of their rapecases within that rape kit. It will also emphasize the relation between victim trauma and untriedsexual assault cases. This is a representation of violence against women from the justice system.
