Background

A description of the experience


Rape and sexual assault statistics are difficult to determine because only approximately 16% of sexual assaults are reported. The U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey estimates 302,100 women and 92,700 men are forcibly raped each year in the United States. ….  Approximately 11% of rapes and sexual assaults are committed by multiple assailants. In 76% of sexual assaults committed by multiple assailants, the assailants were strangers to the victim. …..

Since 1990, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has identified 68 GHB related deaths. 10% of deaths involved 14-19 year olds, 58% were 20-29 years old and 21% were 30-39 years old. Additionally, 60% of the decedents were male and 93% were white. …..Although popular media presentations of date related drugs labels Rohypnol and GHB as the common date rape drugs, there exist approximately 22 substances used in drug facilitated rapes, of which alcohol is the most common finding in investigations of drug-facilitated sexual assault cases.
