What Do You Do If You’re the Victim of a Sexual Assault?

My name is Elliott Jung. I’m one of the sexual assault attorneys and law partners at HHJ Trial Attorneys. One of the things that we’ve seen a large rise in are victims of sexual assault. You know, many years ago it might have been much more difficult for people to come forward and to voice exactly what’s happening to them. Today ,there are many more people that have been empowered to come forward, to challenge the person that’s assaulted them.

 

So what do you do if that’s you? If you’ve endured or had to go through that type of assault, the first thing that you have to do is you have to report it to local law enforcement. Whether you’re with your family friend, a spouse, your counsel, or sexual assault attorney, you have to go and document it as soon as possible because one of the most important things that we can do after some type of assault has happened is to collect evidence – to do a forensic examination and to get DNA.

 

So if you’ve dealt with that type of situation, please there are people that are willing to support you, go and report it to law enforcement.
