Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy found out that over 11,000 rape kits in the City of Detroit hadn’t been tested, callously put aside, unacknowledged, and un-prosecuted. Prosecutor Worthy fought for justice for these victims, tested over 11K rape kits, and brought hundreds of perpetrators to justice. And her fight for justice for rape victims continues in Detroit and nationwide.
