Jordan Fabian: White House Announces $79M To Clear Rape Kit Backlog

The Obama administration announced Thursday its teaming up with the New York City district attorney on a $79 million effort to speed testing of sexual assault evidence kits.  The federal government will kick in $41 million in grants while New York will provide $38 million to clear a backlog of untested kits in 27 states. “When we solve these cases, we get rapists off the streets,” Vice President Biden said in a statement. “The grants we’re announcing today to reduce the national rape kit backlog will bring that sense of closure and safety to victims while improving community safety.” The rape kit backlog is a major issue for law enforcement and women’s groups.
