Description

Comparing data on rape cases in Alaska with similar data for other violent crimes may help to clarify how the crime of rape is handled within the justice system. Comparison of criminal justice processing for 1986-1991 of homicide, rape, robbery, and assault cases supports the conclusion that the percentage of persons arrested, prosecuted, and brought to trial on the original arrest charge is lowest for rape among the four violent crimes. Other differences between dispositions for persons arrested for rape and those arrested within the other three crime categories are also evident.
