Rape reports increase among estimated victims in US military, says Pentagon

  • More victims of sexual assault and rape in the US military are reporting the crimes, a Pentagon study reportedly says on Thursday, December 4, according to media reports.

    The study says that among the estimated 19,000 assault victims of the fiscal year 2014, one in four had reported crimes as compared to just one in ten in 2012.

    The investigation was ordered by President Obama and states that the progress made by the Pentagon in deceasing sexual assault had been “comprehensive.”
