The Orange County Register ran this story on rape evidence backlogs. They mention the fact that there is only one rape evidence collection center in all of Orange County. One rape evidence collection center is a county that is over 900 square miles. Does that seem right to you? They tell us there is a mobile van that comes down here but the truth is that only happens when the victim is hospitalized and that – according to the police officers and medical social workers we have contacted- is not very often.
Please read this article and comment if you would like to see our county take note of the victims in South Orange County.
