If you arrive at an Emergency Room a victim of sexual assault you don’t necessarily receive specialized care. Attorney General Lisa Madigan would like that to change. She’s behind legislation that would ensure assault victims would have to be seen by a specially trained nurse – one prepared to handle sexual assault cases.

Madigan says that the individual will benefit immediately from specialized care and a criminal case, if needed, would be bolstered by the proper collection of evidence.
