State Audit Recommends More Sexual Assault Evidence Kits be Examined
SACRAMENTO -- Labs across the state get hundreds of rape evidence kits every year. “Typically we get in a little over 200 rape kits a year,” said Laboratory of Forensic Sciences Director Jill Spriggs. Now state auditors say more has to be done with them. “Historically we would test about a third of the rape kits collected in the county," said Crime Lab DNA Unit Supervisor Jeff Rodzen.
