Hundreds of Maryland sexual assault survivors signed waivers from police. Now state lawmakers want to ban the forms.

Baltimore-area police departments long offered sexual assault victims a waiver form to document that they didn’t want to go forward with their case. Most stopped, but some still do. Now some Maryland lawmakers want to ban police from using such waivers in sexual assault cases so victims aren’t discouraged to report and prosecute the crimes.
