Publication: The Baylor Lariat
Date: December 6, 2013
During the summer and fall of 2013, I did an in-depth investigation into sexual abuse and rape, with a special emphasis on male victims. After numerous interviews, including an interview with a male victim, and a Texas Public Information Act request to the Waco Police, my research led to the publishing of a four-part series that ran in The Baylor Lariat, the student newspaper of Baylor University.
In this final part, I reported on the process that a victim goes through when a rape kit is collected and the impact that can have on the victim. I also covered the resources available for support and help that is available to both male and female victims of sexual assault.
