Lori Berman, Robin Bartleman File Legislation to Protect Sexual Assault Victims’ Privacy and Anonymity
The measure is designed to plug a loophole in current state law that allows the names or identifying information of survivors who report such crimes to others, including employers and schools, to be disclosed, including information or records created for a potential case against the perpetrator. Perpetrators or other third parties who may be responsible can also threaten public exposure of the survivor’s identity in order to discourage reporting of the crimes to law enforcement, school administrators, employers and others.
