dc.description Fact Sheet en_US
dc.description.abstract his fact sheet draws from research to date to review what we know and don’t know yet about sexual assault kits and DNA testing in the event of sexual assault. It gives five findings: No one knows the number of kits nationwide that have not been submitted for testing, little is known about the age of unsubmitted kits, submitting a kit to a crime lab does not mean the lab will obtain usable DNA, testing a kit can be useful even if the police have a suspect, and the cost to a sexual assault kit varies widely.
