This week, Kristin tells Mogab about An Unbelievable Story of Rape. This story involves 2 investigations into the same serial rapist. One investigation could have not have gone worse, with the rape victim charged and fined for making a false report. The other shows what happens when an investigation is done right. Kristin and Mogab discuss the truth about false reports of rape, and what a normal response to trauma looks like (spoiler: there is no normal response).
