As a rape victim do I have a right to obtain the rape kit results?

Morgantown, WV |

Do I need to hire an attorney to file a subpoena to get my results from the police or the hospital?

The police did such a horrendous job in the investigation (for example they lost evidence and statements) that the case was not filed by the DA. I want to sue for this bad investigation but I can't get my rape kit results.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I would expect that you could find it out by talking with local attorneys experienced in handling sex crime cases. I'm assuming you have already tried, without success, to get information for the police, hospital, and prosecutor's office. If you haven't tried I would. You could also Google "victims rights in West Virginia" Finally a rape crisis center, of which I have to believe there are some in Morgantown could be of assistance to you on multiple levels. Good luck.
