Close to 10% of rapes for the entire year are recorded New Year’s Day.

FRESNO, CA– Fresno Police say they’re finishing the year with a total of 63 cases reported, which is a 20% drop compared to the year before. While the numbers are decreasing local rape counselors say sex crimes remain a big problem in the Central Valley. Fewer rape cases are a trend Fresno Police say is a positive sign their work to educate women is effective.

Police Chief Jerry Dyer says of the rapes reported to officers in 2010, most victims were women who were under the influence. “The truth of the matter is of all of the rapes that we’ve had this year, the vast majority of them are by people they are acquainted with and the reason that they are taken advantage of in many of those circumstances is because alcohol and or drugs are involved.”
