Military sex assault reports shoot up; Pentagon chief says 'clear threat' to both men, women
The Pentagon has released its annual report on sexual assault. The report, which includes a multi-faceted strategy to prevent sexual assault, indicates that alcohol often plays a significant role in the commission of sexual assault. The report says alcohol impairs one's ability to identify a sexual assault threat and is sometimes used as a tool to reduce the victim's resistance or totally incapacitate a victim. The strategy against sexual assault includes five elements: prevention, investigation, accountability, advocacy and assessment of the program.
Number of reported sexual assaults in the military rose 50 percent between 2012 and 2013. The Defense Department says it's confident the figure doesn't reflect more crimes, but that more victims are comfortable enough to come forward.
