Lindsey Knapp served in the Army and got out to become a sexual trauma victim advocate. She talks with me about her story from transitioning from military service to becoming an attorney to now working on sexual assault cases.
Currently, Lindsey is the Executive Director of Combat Sexual Assault, a nonprofit organization that empowers survivors of Military Sexual Trauma by overcoming barriers to obtaining justice. Source (LinkedIn).
Lindsey told me how she was fired from the Army for demanding accountability. (https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/army-rape-trial-special-forces-fort-bragg-1277246/)
According to Lindsey, Denisha’s case is not unusual. The similarities between Vanessa Guillen’s case and Denisha’s show that there is a playbook that certain units in the Army follow to avoid scrutiny and oversight. The only difference is that Denisha sent her family a 13-minute video detailing an assault before she died.
I learned a lot about this case and about how different military and civilian employers handle sexual assault cases.
