Rollins trial, day 1: Stats on violence against women in Alaska as Rollins trial begins

Summary of lifetime estimates of victimization by violence against women

Summary of lifetime estimates of victimization by intimate partner violence and/or sexual violence of Alaska female respondents, from the 2010 Alaska Victimization Survey.

My two big items today, the subject of most of my tweets (or retweets), both had to do with sexual violence in Alaska.

One. Baseline stats from the 2010 Alaska Victimization Survey on the victimization of women by sexual assault and intimate partner violence (i.e., domestic violence) were presented before a joint meeting of two Alaska Senate committees by André Rosay, director of the UAA Justice Center (where I work).

Two. The trial of Anthony Rollins opened in Anchorage. Rollins is a former officer of the Anchorage Police Department who is accused of sexually assaulting six women while on duty.  I previously wrote about Anthony Rollins on this blog on 9 October 2009 in a post called “How to be a friend to an accused serial rapist”. Rollins’ trial is being livetweeted by Grace Jang of KTVA Channel 11 News.
