At last, Virginia addresses backlog of untested rape kits

More than 3,000 rape kits — some up to 25 years old — are finally being tested in Virginia in an effort to determine if any of the cases can be solved even at so late a date.

Attorney General Mark Herring announced earlier this month that a $2 million federal grant will pay for testing nearly 1,250 kits that were collected from 2014 to 2016, but were never sent to a lab for analysis.
