Soraya Chemaly writes about the backlog of untested rape kits and how it has contributed to a lack of convictions in rape cases across the country. She quotes Corey Rayburn Yung's research on unreported rape:
J. Schafer reported:
Carolyn Thomspon wrote, "Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will find out no later than next week whether authorities will pursue charges in the death of a driver he struck during a sprint car race in upstate New York last month.
. . .
Stewart's car struck and killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. at Canandaigua Motorsports Park during a nighttime race Aug. 9. Ward had climbed out of his car and walked onto the dirt track to confront Stewart after he spun out while the two raced side by side.

The Associated Press reported:
Ricky Camilleri hosts a discussion on the underreporting of rape. Prof. Yung and feminist cultural critic Soraya Chemaly provide commentary.

"A thorough analysis of federal data published earlier this year by Corey Rayburn Yung, associate professor at the University of Kansas School of Law, concludes that between 1995 and 2012, police departments across the country systematically undercounted and underreported sexual assaults.
Tyler Kingkade takes on recent assertions from conservative commentators that the campus rape epidemic isn't an epidemic at all.
He wrote, "In research on police prosecution of sexual assaults, Corey Rayburn Yung, an associate law professor at the University of Kansas, concluded that nearly 1 in 4 police departments responsible for populations of at least 100,000 persons are undercounting rape reports."

"On March 4, University Associate Law Professor Corey Rayburn Yung, published an article in the Iowa Law Review entitled 'How to Lie with Rape Statistics: America’s Hidden Rape Crisis.'
The article analyzes the undercounting of rape statistics in 46 cities in the U.S. with a population of more than 100,000 people, estimating that about 800,000 to 1.2 million 'complaints of forcible vaginal rapes of female victims nationwide disappeared from the official records from 1995 and 2012.'
