Sexual Assault and Its Effects

Sexual assault is any unwanted or forced sexual act. It can happen to anyone, and is never the victim’s fault. Sexual assault can have a wide variety of effects on survivors.

Maryland SAKI Impact Map

In 2018, Maryland received funding under the Bureau of Justice Assistance Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) project to address the state's backlog of unsubmitted and untested sexual assault evidence kits (“rape kits” or SAEKs). As part of these efforts, a statewide inventory was conducted to determine how many unsubmitted and untested/partially tested kits exist in Maryland. The Maryland SAKI Impact Map shows the unsubmitted and partially tested SAEK inventory in each county, and with each law enforcement agency.
