Understanding Sexual Abuse Claims In Michigan
According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), sexual abuse is more common than most people realize. RAINN says that someone is assaulted every 73 seconds in this country. In the US, around one out of every six women has been the victim of attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.
Approximately 3% of all men have experienced an attempted or completed rape. However, not all sexual abuse gets classified as rape, so those statistics are incomplete.
When we look at data from RAINN that focuses on child sexual abuse, the statistics are even more alarming. Child protective services agencies in the US report that around 63,000 children are victims of sexual abuse each year. Of the victims under the age of 18: 34% are under 12 years of age.
Sexual abuse can happen anywhere. Studies have shown that the most common location a person experiences these assaults is in their own home or when traveling to and from work or running errands. In the vast majority of these cases, the victim knows the perpetrator of the assault.
