New Program for Rape Victims Starts this Week
The FBI shows the number of reported rapes hit a 20-year low in the U.S. last year. Those numbers also dropped locally -- just not as much.
Experts say the decline in reported rapes does not mean that fewer rapes are happening. They say many victims seek services -- not justice.
Alachua County offers several services like a new 10-week session featuring counseling, yoga and meditation.
