How is a Sex Crime Classified?
The crime of rape occurs when the victim is forced into a sexual encounter without their consent.
During a criminal investigation of a sex crime, the perpetrator and victim will be examined in search of signs indicating that a forced sexual encounter had taken place. If there are signs of tearing or shredding the the clothing, usually this means there was a forced rape at stake.
The police officer shall only collect evidence of the victim’s clothing on parts of the body like hands and arms during the initial investigation. The officer shall not attempt to remove the clothes for any extent, otherwise he or she shall be considered accused of indecent assault.
The offender’s clothing shall be examined for the effects of resistance by the victim. The suspected stains are also examined about the effects of the blood of the victim.
