If you are a victim of sexual violence, evidence of the assault and/or the identity of the attacker may be left on your body. You are encouraged to get an exam as soon as possible in order to preserve the evidence of the assault. Preserved evidence may be used in an investigation or criminal proceedings.
The following location provides Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) to victims of sexual violence.
