I AM EVIDENCE
Trish Adlesic, Geeta Gandbhir
Produced by Mariska Hargitay, of Law & Order: SVU fame, I Am Evidence exposes the shocking number of untested rape kits in the U.S. Despite the power of DNA to solve and prevent crimes, hundreds of thousands of kits - each representing an unresolved sexual assault case - languish untested in police evidence storage rooms across the country, including Detroit. The dormant status of these kits, some of which have been in police custody for decades, mirrors the pattern of how the criminal justice system has historically treated sexual assault victims. Meanwhile, perpetrators are never held accountable for their crimes.
