Long road ahead for assault victims
With the suspect in five sexual assaults around Marion County and Gainesville under arrest, the road to recovery is just beginning for victims. Alachua County Victim Services Project Coordinator Laura Kalt says it is important for victims to have a supportive group of friends who will listen without judgment.
Kalt says sexual assault recovery is about trying to make sense of what happened, realizing it did happen and dealing with the problem. Coverage of the Marion County suspect’s arrest is available here.
