Survivor’s Rights

You may be able to get a criminal stay away order and/or a civil harassment restraining order that would require the assailant to stay away from you. Talk to the Center’s counselor to further discuss this option as well as other legal options.

The sexual assault counselor from the Center is required by law to keep confidential everything you tell her privately. This means she can’t talk to anyone (your friends, family, law enforcement, district attorney, etc.) about what you’ve said, your case, or anything related to the sexual assault unless you want her to and you sign a written agreement.
