Laura Neuman was the victim of rape when she was 18 years old. Nineteen years later, Laura's extensive advocacy efforts finally led to the resolution of her case. With the help of dedicated detectives and the Maryland fingerprint database, the perpetrator was arrested, convicted, and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
As a result of Laura going public with her case, the perpetrator has now been indicted in 8 additional cases and is potentially linked to dozens more.
Laura Neuman created this effort to help other women get their cases reopened, actively investigated, and successfully resolved through the criminal justice system. Laura also believes that victims speaking out about this crime is what will lead to a change in the incidence of rape.
