From Report to Court has been written to provide information and support to people who have experienced sexual violence, as well as to their families, friends and the organisations that support them. This handbook will explain the different stages of the legal process, from the point of deciding whether or not to report the incident to the police, through to the trial, verdict and sentence. From Report to Court also sets out the relevant law and what obligations the different agencies in the criminal justice system (for example, the police and the Crown Prosecution Service) have to survivors of sexual violence.
