Consider Your Options

When did the assault happen?

LESS THAN 96 hours ago

There is still a chance to collect DNA evidence. Call the police where the assault occurred. The police will escort you to the nearest hospital with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program or another appropriate facility.

OVER 96 hours ago

Even if the window for a forensic exam has passed, medical attention may still be important, especially if you’re experiencing physical discomfort or other abnormal symptoms. Although forensic evidence cannot be collected, you can still file a police report if you so desire.

Reporting & Non-Reporting Options


Adults

There is a Non-Report option for individuals ages 18 and above who arrive within the 96 hour window. This option does not involve the police in any way. Survivors who choose this option are able to complete a forensic exam with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE). Evidence collected in the exam will be stored for two years should the survivor choose to file a police report.

Minors

Sexual assault of anyone under the age of 18 must be reported to law enforcement under Texas mandatory reporting laws. If you are a survivor who is under age 18, over age 60, or disabled, it’s  important to understand the state’s mandatory reporting laws. Please call our hotline 210-349-7273 for more information.
