What is a Rape Kit?

When there is a complaint of a Sexual Assault, the accuser is encouraged to go see a SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) nurse to have a thorough medical examination.  A SANE nurse specializes in medical examinations of those individuals who claim they have been sexualy assaulted.

A rape kit is used during a sexual assault medical forensic exam to collect possible DNA evidence.  A Rape Kit is a box of items used by a SANE nurse in order to do his/her job efficiently.  A Rape Kit contains swabs, envelopes, instructions and forms.  The possibility of DNA evidence may be found in semen, saliva, hairs, on the body or on items such as clothing. This evidence can be used in the criminal investigation and prosecution of Sex Crimes.  The medical exam can preserve evidence that may help the police and prosecutor with a criminal case.  The results of a SANE medical exam can be used by the state to seal their case.
