This is a subject very close to my heart as I am a survivor of sexual assault , I was treated very badly by the police , they dropped my case and let the rapist go with out charge , they told me they had insufficient evidence and it was in my best interest , but what actually occurred was completely different ! I made a claim for compensation with the cica , I was turned down , they said I re tracted my statement ??? I did not !!!!
I made a complaint to the IPCC and I got an apology they said they made a mistake on there crime management system or something .
I still did not get compensation because I was told after my appeal that there was not enough evidence to substantiate that it was not consensual sexual intercourse ? I had all the prof , I was covered in bruising , I had bite mark on my face , there was seaman present , I was torn internally , and many more injuries I was attacked at knife point and held against my will for 8 hours , I did not look like a person who had consented to sexual inter courses ! I was so upset I was shaking , I am going through a tribunal with my solicitor as I will not let this drop , I feel like this is what is happening to me ! They are saying I consented ! I’m not sure what is going on , but I am posting this to try and help other women see what is happening to us when we report this type of crime , they make it look like it’s your fault , but it is not !
I am shocked by this article , what are your thoughts ? Have you been treated badly by the police following a sexual assault ?
