House approves study of teen sexual assaults

– The House of Representatives has approved a plan to study the number of teen sexual assaults and rapes.

The House voted unanimously Wednesday in favor of the measure sought by Democratic Rep. Christina Hale of Indianapolis. Hale has spent much of the session trying to raise awareness about the large number of sexual assaults in the state.

The committee tasked with studying the issue would examine the causes of the crimes, including who commits them and where they are committed. Hale said the state suffers from underreporting of assaults.

The Centers for Disease Control indicates one out of every six girls in Indiana have been raped or sexually assaulted.
