Physical Evidence Recovery Kits (PERKs) storage. (HB 2127)


Legislative Action Summary

This bill does two things.  First, it guarantees that evidence of sexual assault will be preserved until at least age 28. Second, it gives survivors of sexual assault (of any age) the option of extending the storage of evidence by 10 years at a time--as many times as they want--if they are not ready to pursue charges at that time.
