Dig Season 1: Prosecution Declined
Dig: Prosecution Declined is the result of the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting’s yearlong look at how rape cases are investigated in Louisville. What we learned: here, the police defer to prosecutors on rape cases — and prosecutors reject the vast majority of cases presented to them.
Due to this unusual relationship, most people accused of rape here will never face consequences. Most won’t be arrested or convicted. And the case will be closed anyway.
