WSBT-TV
The certification to do a sexual-assault exam is one that is widely lacking both locally and nationally. Pediatric SANEs, which require an additional level of certification, are particularly scarce. Those interviewed for this story say a hospital staffed with enough adult and pediatric SANEs to cover all shifts requires money and re-sources for the stringent training and certification process, something not always avail-able or emphasized. Yet the expertise it takes to care for these individuals and properly collect the evidence is crucial, nurses and law enforcement say.

Virginia city's rape policy was 'assume the victim is lying' until last week
The Raw Story
The city of Norfolk, Virginia only last week changed its official police policy away from assuming that victims of sexual assault are lying about what happened to them. According to Think Progress, Norfolk police classified all sexual assault claims as "unfounded" by default. The rules changed in the wake of a case involving a 22-year-old woman who reported a sexual assault only to be told by police, "If we find out that you’re lying, this will be a felony charge."
