Military Investigates Alleged Sexual Assaults

Due to two separate military sexual assault cases in 2012 led to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordering a review of the background records of all service members occupying positions of trust, such as sexual assault response coordinators and those working in similar capacities. Several high-profile cases garnered national media attention, and a Pentagon statistic estimating that rate of unwanted sexual contact within the military increased by 35 percent from 2010 to 2012 was released- both of these events prompted the review.
