Sexual Assault is a Violent Crime & is NEVER Your Fault.


Whether your attacker is someone you know, someone you just met, or a total stranger, without your ability to give legal consent, it is a crime to be touched in a sexual way.

If you are assaulted, you may want to get help to hold the perpetrator accountable for the crime. Rapists don't stop with one victim. You could be helping many other women by getting law enforcement involved to catch the criminal.


If you become a victim of sexual assault:

  • Do not wash yourself
  • Do not bathe, shower or clean away possible evidence
  • Do not change the clothing you had on when you were attacked.
  • Do not drink/eat anything until you have been examined by a physician.

A VICTIM ADVOCATE IS READY TO HELP YOU. CALL 530-623-HELP, 24-HRS, COLLECT OKAY.


A Victim Advocate can:

  • Go with you while you receive medical care.
  • Help you tell your family about sexual assault.
  • Be present with you during interviews.
  • Accompany you to court hearings necessary to convict a rapist of his crime.
  • Provide peer counseling to help you deal with the impact of being victimized.


Facts about the crime:

  • Acquaintance rape accounts for 76% of reported cases in the USA.
  • Date rape occurs most often to females in the age range of 12 - 26 years of age.
  • Whether it's a stranger or someone you know who forces you to be sexual, that is sexual assault.
  • Children (under 18) may be molested over a period of years before the "secret" is out.
