Murfreesboro Sexual Assault Therapist says Victims are Never to Blame

  Email   Print

Too often, sexual assault victims fail to come forward due to self-blame. Shelly Wright, Sexual Assault Therapist with the local Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Service Office in Murfreesboro stated...



Wright continued by saying sexual assault is not about one person having too much passion, it is about one person breaking the law...



Clothing, dating, alcohol use should be completely irrelevant when a sexual assault occurs as that assault is a crime...



The aftermath of sexual crimes are long term. The Department of Justice reports that approximately 70% of rape or sexual assault victims experience moderate to severe distress, a larger percentage than for any other violent crime.
