Sexual Assault Victims Right Law Goes Into Effect
Survivors of sexual assault deserve the best care and justice. No one should have to pay for a sexual assault examination and we found that statewide nurses and medical professionals needed training to become trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners.
That I why in 2016 I introduced and passed a law to create a position in the Nebraska Attorney General’s office to train medical professionals statewide and ensure no victim of sexual assault is charged for their examination.
This Omaha World Herald article highlighted not only the payment of the examinations going into effect but the woman selected to lead the new statewide initiative to help bring justice to survivors of sexual assault.
