The sexual assault unit is a specialized division of the District Attorney’s Office dedicated to prosecuting perpetrators of sexual assault and trafficking. This specialized unit is comprised of specially trained prosecutors, investigators and victim advocates who are dedicated to seeking justice for those who have survived crimes of sexual assault.

This unit handles all cases of sexual assault, labor and sexual trafficking occurring to victims who are at least 17 years of age or older. It was created to specifically address victim service issues and to provide a heightened level of expertise to these serious cases. The members of this unit also serve as active members in the Dallas County Sexual Assault Coalition and the Sexual Assault Response Team in a multi-disciplinary team effort to meet regularly with community partners such as law enforcement, forensic specialists, advocates and sexual assault exam nurses to provide training and participate in crime prevention and education efforts.

This unit is also part of a national initiative to test previously untested sexual assault kits. This unit is the recipient of approximately $2.5 million in federal grants to fund the investigation and prosecution of any cases that are solved out of this project. If you are a survivor of sexual assault and would like more information regarding the status of testing for your sexual assault kit, you may send an email to or call 972-955-4923.

Research shows that every two minutes, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. Sexual assault has become more common than smoking. In the U.S., 51.1% of sexual assaults were committed by an intimate partner. One in five Texas women are sexually assaulted at some point in their lifetime. Sexual violence is frequently used by an offender to demonstrate power and maintain control. Over 290 cases of adult related sexual assault were filed with the District Attorney’s Office last year.

To make a report of sexual assault, please call your local law enforcement agency.
