I came across the case of Louise Ogborn who was an employee at McDonalds who in 2004 was stripped of her clothes and sexually assaulted on the orders of a voice on the phone claiming to be a police officer. Link Removed by Cat which has part of the story, some of you in the US may be more familiar with the case. If I saw the end of the tape correctly when they realised they had been hoaxed called the police, it looks like they allowed the victim to get dressed. According to one press report another assistant manager wrapped a blanket around the victim as she was suffering from hypothermia. Question. I was always under the understanding that victims of SA were not allowed to shower or do anything until they had been processed to avoid the compromising of evidence. So by allowing the employee to get dressed before the police were on scene, did they in theory compromise evidence, especially as, from the video, part of the assault resulted in injuries to the victim's rear end. Would the security recording of the attack had sufficed? What is protocol in these cases, do victims have to wait before receiving any medical aid until they are processed. Usually on the CSI programme they are photographing them at the hospital, although on the CSI Miami episode where they introduced CSI NY, Stella insisted on photographing a stabbing victim before he went off in the ambulance. Edited by Cat: I removed the link; my explanation is in a couple of posts below.
