Still an Ordeal Being Processed by Police After Rape

When I was visiting Florida earlier this year, I noticed an article in a local paper Folio titled ‘Why It Sucks To Get Raped Jacksonville: Advocate Jessi Acosta offers an unvarnished look at rape’s official aftermath’ authored by journalist Susan Cooper Eastman. The story discusses the Sexual Assault Response Centre in Jacksonville, Florida, and whilst there have been improvements, according to the article, the wait for a forensic examiner can be an ordeal. Sometimes these women have to wait for hours without drinking, showering, combing hair or changing clothes. In addition, when examiners are called out on weekends and holidays, the rape survivor can be made to feel like an incovenience.
