The Memphis Rape Kit Backlog - Judge Doyel

www.judgedoyel.com [cached]

February 12, 2014 - WMC-TV broadcast the mayor's press conference with Sarah Tofte, policy vice president of the Joyful Heart Foundation, to announce that JHF was going to "help figure out how to process the more than 12,000 untested kits. The city was also "launching an investigation into why there was a backlog in the first place. The news conference was a virtual love fest between JHF and Mayor Wharton despite the seemingly dilatory actions taken by the city. February 17, 2014 - Wharton and Tofte published a guest editorial in the Memphis newspaper, The Commercial Appeal. JHF, they said, was "donating their services" to deal with the backlog of untested rape kits. JHF would "help ensure that the approach taken is survivor-centered. Wharton and Tofte called upon the Memphis City Council to approve a request for $1 million of the $5.6 million then estimated as the cost to test the backlogged kits. Only $1 million of a $5.6 million cost?
