Calif. Senate passes rape kit testing bill

On Tuesday night, the California State Senate passed a bill that will require the testing of all rape kits in counties where fewer than 12% of forcible rape cases result in arrests.

If the bill becomes law, it will also require that police report back to the Department of Justice about how many rape kits they collect and how many are tested.

The bill’s author, state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, told the Pasadena Star News: “It’s unconscionable that thousands of rape kits remain unopened and untested across California. Rape kits hold vital evidence that is crucial to a criminal conviction.”
