The Iowa Attorney General's Office says the state is ready to move forward on thousands of untested sexual assault evidence kits.
"Our hope is to do justice. Our hope is that we will find perpetrators of sexual abuse, perhaps some of them serial perpetrators, we'll be able to apprehend them and charge them and put them in prison," said Attorney General Tom Miller.
A review of rape kits found that more than 4,200 kits have not yet been tested across the state.
