This book examines how alcohol intoxication impacts upon the memory of rape victims and provides recommendations for how best to investigate and prosecute such rape complaints. An estimated 75% of victims are under the influence of alcohol during a sexual assault and yet there is surprisingly little guidance on conducting interviews with complainants who were alcohol-intoxicated during the attack. This book will provide a distinctive, rigorous and important contribution to knowledge by reviewing the evidence base on the effects of alcohol on memory performance. The book brings together a range of academics from various disciplines, including psychology, law and criminology, and it discusses the implications for practice based on consultation with various criminal justice practitioners, including police officers, barristers who defend and prosecute rape cases and policy makers.
