Dig is a new podcast from the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting.  The first season brings you the results of a yearlong look at how rape cases are investigated in Louisville. We've learned that in Louisville, the police defer to prosecutors on rape cases — and prosecutors reject the vast majority of cases presented to them. Due to this unusual relationship, most  people accused of rape here will never face consequences. Most won’t be arrested or convicted. And the case will be closed anyway.

Your donation will help fund this season of Dig. You can become a monthly Sustainer to support future seasons of this podcast or support Louisville Public Media in general, too.
