After a sexual assault, victims may be asked or choose to undergo an examination to collect any remaining evidence from the assault. This evidence is then collected into what is called a rape kit. Unfortunately for many victims, thousands of rape kits were not processed due to the cost before the aid of modern techniques. Now, Ohio authorities are working to process all backlogged rape kits.
