Surviving sexual assault does not end at the hospital, especially if a victim decides to press charges. Should an individual decide to go to court, there’s information they should know. I sat down with Jude Claire Jason, a Dekalb county magistrate judge, to learn about how sexual assault cases might be handled in the courtroom.
It’s important for those impacted by assault, both victims and their loved ones, to know where and how they can get access to medical care and therapy. I sat down with Jasmine Gendry, a medical student, to learn about what Crisis centers are and how they can help victims of sexual assault.
