OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter is sending cease-and-desist letters to two companies that are marketing do-it-yourself sexual assault kits victims can use to gather evidence at home.
Flanked by a rape survivor and a Tulsa sexual assault detective, Hunter issued a consumer warning on Thursday and urged Oklahomans not to use the products, saying they have "no value whatsoever."
New Jersey-based The Preserve Group, LLC, and New York's MeToo Kits Company both promote their at-home evidence kits toward victims of sexual assault who don't immediately report the incident to law enforcement.
Hunter said he fears the at-home products could discourage victims from coming forward and that evidence gathered at home would be inadmissible in court.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa Built-in - Black read more
Telephone and email messages to the two companies on Friday seeking comment weren't immediately returned.
