Violation of trust: Read our four-part investigative series

Our investigative report, Violation of Trust, takes an in-depth look at how sexual assault cases are pursued by authorities across Southern Illinois -- and how seldom the victims of those assaults find justice.

Here are the four-parts:

Day 1: Sex crime victims find that police, prosecutors don't charge their attackers

Day 2: When a child is raped or molested, often the case goes nowhere

Day 3: On SIUC campus, few sex crimes wind up in court

Day 4: Illinois sex crime statistics don't tell the whole story
