Being a Sexual Assault Survivor in College Often Comes with Huge Bills
January 14, 2016
Yet for all the national attention to sexual assault in college, we don't yet know how much each attack on campus costs. Rape is considered the second most costly crime next to murder for individuals and for society, according to Justice Department statistics, though sexual assault is many times more common. Individually, an adult victim of sexual assault in Texas can expect to pay between $15,000 and $50,000 in medical services, lost work productivity, and mental health care, one 2006 study found, while a separate paper in Michigan deemed the personal cost of each sexual assault to be $108,447.
