A Wisconsin woman was jailed for an outstanding warrant when she reported a sexual assault that was committed against her. She was jailed for more than 2 months while her attacker remained free.
The warrant was for fleeing a halfway house before her sentence for battery was completed. She knew she had an outstanding warrant but still felt that her complaint should be heard.
Her stay in jail was particularly awful as she was unable to receive proper medical treatment for a shoulder hurt just before her attack and jailing.
The victim was attacked by an acquaintance who gave her a ride home.
