WI Attorney General Says Testing Now Complete on Backlog of Sexual Assault Kits

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul says testing has been
completed on thousands of unanalyzed sexual assault evidence kits. Kaul said in
a news release Wednesday that testing was finished on all 4,471 kits that had
been designated for analysis. The state Department of Justice first began analyzing
those kits in 2016, and the testing has resulted in a dozen criminal cases so

Kaul also announced that Wisconsin has won a federal grant
for $1.8 million dollars to continue investigating cases related to the testing
and fund a kit tracking system. Victim advocates have been pushing since 2014
to analyze the kits to identity serial offenders.
