I’d like to make a request under the Freedom of Information Law on behalf of [the applicant name is redacted]. I understand that the Law allows 20 working days for a response, but if I could appeal to you for a speedy response as we would like to use the statistics for [the reason is redacted as this may reveal the applicant's identity].
For clarification, I am presuming that rape is classed as a serious sexual assault, and therefore sexual assault figures are different. Please could you find for me:
The number of rapes reported to the States of Jersey police in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
The number of sexual assaults reported to the States of Jersey Police in 2012, 2013, 2014.
The status of these reports (being investigated, charged, conviction, withdrawn, dropped for lack of evidence).
If the report resulted in a conviction, what sentence was passed down by the court?
How many of those convicted of rape and sexual assault, have previous convictions and what were they for?
The information provided to the applicant is in the document below.
