HBO Documentary Shines a Light on the Nation’s Troubling Trend of Untested Rape Kits


On Law and Order: SVU, detective Olivia Benson (played by Mariska Hargitay) is a member of an elite squad who has helped victims of sexual assault get justice from their attackers for nearly two decades. In the upcoming HBO documentary I Am Evidence, Hargitay explores the real life fight for police to examine the hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits across the country. The documentary's focus is especially relevant as April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the United States — and draws renewed attention to the state of affairs in Louisiana.
