Sexual Assault investigation information

Sexual assault nurse examination (SANE). A SANE is an examination of an alleged victim’s body and clothing by a specially trained nurse. In a SANE, the nurse particularly looks at the alleged victim’s genitalia for evidence consistent with forcible entry, such as vaginal bruising. A SANE collects evidence such as semen and hair samples.

Generally, state and federal courts disallow the results of polygraph tests to be admissible as evidence in a criminal case. A SANE is usually always admissible as evidence in a criminal case. The exception is if the results appear to have been faulty or tampered with. If a SANE was performed in your case, insist that the evidence collected be tested for accuracy. If the evidence appears to have been tampered with, speak to your attorney about possible “chain of custody” issues. This topic concerns a misplacement of the evidence or wrongful access to it by an unauthorized party.

A District Attorney will watch your behavior while the investigation is ongoing. They will partially base their decision as to whether they will prosecute you on your actions and demeanor. It is important that you learn from your attorney not only how to understand your case, but how to behave in and out of court until your case is resolved.
