Re: Dwight Stirling

Dwight Stirling was quoted about military responses to sexual assault cases. "The military has tried to solve this issue with all kinds of new programs and personnel and offices and SAPR and what not. None of it has worked. I contend that it will never work until you allow the person who is a survivor, the victim, their day in court," said Sterling.
