BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Louisiana State Police Crime Lab is now up to date, with no backlog of cases where the analysis of rape kits is involved.

"We are now working cases real time, not six months after the crime or the year after the crime, but within the same day the crime actually occurred," said Joanie Brocato. "We can process the cases at the same time."

Now they're able to give detectives results on rape kits in real time or within a day.
