Overview

A gynaecologist may, as part of their professional remit, become the first contact person examining a victim of a sexually motivated criminal offence. The paper emphasises that the examination should not only examine the body and capture any biological evidence but, importantly, should also take into account possible intentional intoxication of the victim by the offender. Identification and appropriate recording of possible pharmacological alteration of the victim‘s cognitive functioning should be a standard element of any comprehensive examination.

Key words:
rape – violence – drugs – alcohol – intoxication – amnesia
