Idaho Catches Up With Sexual Assault Kit Backlog

May 22, 2018

A 2016 report found that Idaho forensic services had a back-up of sexual assault evidence kits that needed to be tested. Thanks to a groundbreaking kit tracking system, the Idaho State Police have managed to process more than a third of the kits, but there are many waiting to be tested.

On Monday's Idaho Matters, Emily Lowe of the Press-Tribune joins Gemma Gaudette in studio to parse out her reporting and State Representative Melissa Wintrow discusses legislative efforts to fast-track the processing of these kits.
