Attorney urges New Hampton Police, School District to take rape case seriously

Posted: Updated:
NEW HAMPTON (KWWL) - The attorney for a New Hampton High School student who claims she was raped is speaking out nine weeks after he says a 17-year-old was sodomized and raped in the boys' locker room.

New Hampton Police Chief Mike Anderson confirmed a rape kit was completed on March 24th.

He said it was mailed to crime analysts at the Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Crime Lab in Ankeny, but he said he isn't sure when they received it.

State law requires sexual assault kits involving juveniles to be processed by DCI within 60 days of receiving it.

On Wednesday, Anderson said his department still hadn't received the results of the rape kit yet.

The teen's attorney Jason Abraham from Hupy and Abraham said he expects the police department and school district to take this case as seriously as they said they would.

"The family is anxious to see how it's handled," he said.
