Information you choose to share privately with your advocate is privileged and therefore CONFIDENTIAL.

Helping Victims vs. Retraumatizing Them, Forensic Nurse:"In the 1990s, SANE programs sprang up in communities across the country to address the inadequacy of the traditional model for sexual assault medical evidentiary exams. According to the U.S. Justice Department Office for Victims of Crimes (OVC)'s bulletin1, victims are often retraumatized when they come to hospital emergency departments for medical care and forensic evidence collection. Where they exist, SANE programs have made a profound difference in the quality of care provided to sexual assault victims."

Payment for Forensic Exams - National Center for Victims of Crime:"With the passage of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in 1994, Congress specifically addressed the problem of sexual assault victims being charged with forensic exam costs.(1) Requiring states, Indian tribal governments, and local governmental agencies to assume responsibility for the "full out-of-pocket cost of forensic [sexual assault] medical exams"(2) in order to qualify for the S.T.O.P. (Services Training Officers Prosecutors) Violence Against Women Formula Grants Program, provided incentives for states to find alternative ways to cover the costs of sexual assault evidentiary exams. In order to receive these federal funds, states must certify that sexual assault victims will not be responsible for the forensic exam costs, and designate an entity to pay for the exams. Although this requirement must be met for grant eligibility, the grants available under VAWA are not intended to be used to pay for forensic exams; instead, the funding is earmarked for a variety of other services related to violent crimes against women."

Data Collection by SANE Programs, U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs, Office for Victims of Crime:"Because SANE programs follow cases from the initial evidence collection through prosecution, they often gather valuable data on the results of the evidence collected. Data can include information such as the likelihood of finding sperm at a specific site at a specific time and the likelihood of a sexual assault victim being injured during the assault.16 Such data can aid law enforcement and prosecution efforts. For example, the above information can help prosecutors who need to explain that the lack of injuries or the absence of sperm does not mean that a woman was not raped.17"
