FBI: Alaska leads nation in rapes per capita

ANCHORAGE — The FBI’s crime statistics for 2013 indicate Alaska leads the nation in rapes per capita.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports the FBI counted 922 rapes last year, a rate of 124.4 per 100,000 residents.

That’s three times the national average.

The number has increased in part because the FBI has revised its definition of rape.

The agency’s Uniform Crime Reporting program formerly included only women victims and now includes men.

FBI spokesman Kevin Donovan says the new definition also includes nonconsensual acts of sodomy and sexual assaults with objects.
