Fifty State Surveys

The Project on Addressing Prison Rape has developed fifty state surveys of state criminal laws in a variety of areas in order to increase understanding about legal responses and sanctions available for sexual abuse in custodial settings. We try to update these surveys yearly. If your state law needs to be updated please email us at endsilence@wcl.american.edu.
