It is staggering how many myths, misapprehensions and straight-up prejudices attach to crimes of rape and sexual violence. While shooting the film we discovered how prosecutors must constantly battle these deeply ingrained attitudes and cultural stereotypes and we thought it would be interesting to test what YOU understand about these crimes.
We are posting these myths once a week, every week, leading up to the HBO broadcast on June 20th.
We hope you’ll watch them all, pass them around and help us to shed truth and light on a crime that is still woefully under-reported and misunderstood.
"Sex Crimes Unit has drama, suspense, terrific personalities and a great deal of heart."
