Come hear the story of Lavinia Masters, who is the name behind the bill that was recently passed that was aimed at reducing the backlog of untested rape kits across Texas. The Lavinia Masters Act:
*Requires an audit of untested rape kits to determine the number, status, and location of all rape kits in Texas
*Created timelines for the submission, testing and analysis for all newly collected kits
*Prohibits law enforcement agencies from destroying rape kits related to an uncharged or unsolved case until the later of the 1) the length of the statute of limitations or 2) 50 years
*Toll the statute of limitations for sexual assault and aggravated assault until the rape kit is tested
*Increase the time the Texas Department of Public Safety maintains rape kits classified as non-reports from two years to five years.
This inspirational story is something that you don’t want to miss!
