This paper examines the literature on rape and the American Criminal Justice System. Particular emphasis is given to reforms that have taken place in the response of the Criminal Justice system to this crime over the last several years.

From the Paper:

"Rickert and associates report that sexual violence is a serious problem that affects millions of adults, adolescents and children each year and that rape in particular is very serious not only because of its grave psychoemotional consequences, but also because it so often goes under-reported. Unfortunately, as noted by the Rape Abuse and Incest National Network (RAIN) arriving at an exact conceptual definition of rape is difficult and legal definitions can differ from state to state."
