The Department of Justice investigated sexual assaults reported to the Missoula police between January and May Few of these assaults were properly handled by either the university or local authorities.

In this, Missoula is also typical. A DOJ report released in December of estimateswomen between the ages of eighteen and twenty-four are raped keper year.
