From the AP Wire 

RICHMOND – Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s Office released a statement Tuesday warning potential users of a self-administer sexual assault evidence kit.

The evidence from that type of kit could be ruled inadmissable in a criminal proceeding because of chain of custody issues.

Herring’s Office also said that the products could delay or prevent survivors from connecting with health care resources and sources of support.

Other attorneys general and survivor advocacy organizations have warned against using the products.
