Victim Rights to Sexual Assault Evidence Kit Testing Information

Victim Rights to Evidence Kit Testing Information

Under Michigan law, a sexual assault victim has the right to know:

  • When the Sexual Assault Evidence Kit was delivered to a crime lab for testing
  • Whether a DNA profile (DNA evidence) was obtained from the Sexual Assault Evidence Kit
  • Whether a DNA profile was entered into CODIS (a case evidence database)
  • Whether a DNA profile resulted in a CODIS hit

The police agency investigating the sexual assault is required to provide this information to the victim, if available. However, in some circumstances, the police agency may wait to share it if providing the information would somehow hurt the investigation. MCL 752.956.
