Seven years ago, Arizona started a program through which bars could get employees trained to stop a potential sexual assault before it happens. Now, researchers at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University are planning to study whether the Arizona Safer Bars Alliance initiative is having a significant impact.

Police say a Prescott man who allegedly kidnapped and sexually assaulted a teenage girl last week is a registered sex offender.

A federal jury in Arizona has convicted a former Hopi law enforcement officer accused of sexually assaulting a female in custody.  Prosecutors say 25-year-old Mackenzie Davis is scheduled to be sentenced in February 2020 and is facing up to 23 years in prison.

Jurors have awarded nearly $5 million to two women who say they were sexually assaulted during massages at a Sedona spa in 2016.
