Trib Talk: Problems with prosecuting rape cases
First Published Jan 07 2014 07:17 am • Last Updated Jan 13 2014 01:00 pm

An audit shows just 6 percent of rape cases filed between 2003 and 2011 in Salt Lake County were prosecuted. Why are rape cases so difficult to bring to court and what will it take systemically to ensure justice for more rape victims?

On Tuesday at 12:15 p.m., Salt Lake County chief deputy district attorney Blake Nakamura, Rape Recovery Center executive director Holly Mullen and Salt Lake Tribune justice reporter Erin Alberty join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about ways to address the issue.
