Trigger warning: Segment covers some aspects of the aftermath of rape in detail. JoLynn Backes, a case manager in the Albany County Crime Victims and Sexual Violence Center (CVSVC), talks with HMM’s Brea Barthel about the education programs, services, and support available through her unit, including a sexual assault hotline (518-447-7716), personal advocates to help victims of crimes, help with applying for victim compensation, and more.
