|Commission on Sexual Assault|
|SJR 108 (Regular Session, 1992)|
|Two years ago, the members of the Commission on the Reduction of Sexual Assault (SJR 108) defined our mission as creating a plan to break the tragic cycle of sexual assault victimization which so often begins with the assault of a child.|
With our 1993 recommendations, and the resulting legislation, Virginia moved to the forefront nationally in confronting the difficult and painful issues of child sexual assault, incest and rape. With this report and the recommendations it contains, we believe that Virginia can complete the circle, protecting our citizens with tough laws and penalties; offering healing assistance to victims, especially children; and intervening to break the cycle in which victims can become victimizers.
