Rape Crisis Center Confidentiality

 

Rape Crisis Center Confidentiality

Illinois' "Confidentiality of Statements Made to Rape Crisis Personnel" statute provides significant protection to communications between a victim and a rape crisis worker. Creating an absolute privilege for rape victims has provided victims with stronger protections and given victims more control over information about their lives. Victims can confide in rape crisis center counselors and advocates, knowing that they run little risk of having those communications disclosed publicly unless they consent to such disclosure.
