Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"


Q. Let's say a woman gets raped and a policeman just happens to drive by and see but before he can pull over the man runs away. If the vitim doesn't want to talk about it, report it, etc; can she get charged for not complying with the officer? This scenerio is unlikely, but I was just wondering what a vitim's rights were if this, or something like it were to happen.


Dear Juneau Resident,

Good question! There is no legal requirement for a person who is a victim of a crime to report it. Also, victims have a choice to cooperate or not with the prosecution of a rape suspect. However, if you are a witness to certain serious crimes including rape, under certain conditions Alaska law requires you to report it to the police. (See AS 11.56.765-767)
