New Article on False Reporting Released

The National Center for the
Prosecution of Violence
Against Women has recently published an article addressing false reporting.

Currently law enforcement and criminal prosecution in the U.S. is very low on sexual violence due to the strong belief that victims are falsley reporting. Up-to-date research indicates that the

rate of false reporting for sexual assault is in the range of 2-8%. Using these facts this article goes on to suggest improvements to prosecution and how to handle the few incidents of false reports.
