Buncombe County’s rape crisis and prevention center says it has seen a surge in calls before, during, and after last Thursday's hearing featuring Dr. Christine Ford.  She testified to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee allegations that supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. 

There are more than 15,000 sexual assault evidence collection kits in North Carolina that have yet to be tested, according to the numbers compiled by the Department of Justice and made available by Attorney General Josh Stein’s office and the state crime lab.
