If I have been raped, how long do I have to report it?

There is no statute of limitations for pursuing justice in the state of South Carolina. STSM serves all survivors, even if the assault was twenty or more years ago. STSM can help you file a police report for an assault no matter how long ago it took place. If you were assaulted with 72 hours (3 days) you can go to the hospital to receive a sexual assault evidence collection kit. If your assault was more than 3 days ago or you do not wish to have evidence collected and you need medical treatment, it is best to contact your primary care doctor to avoid a costly hospital visit.
