How long does it usually take for police to catch a rapist?

I know I'm being impatient especially since I didn't report it til about 22 weeks after it happened and I burned the clothes but I still feels like it's taking so long

on average how long does it take to catch and lock up a rapist???

They do have DNA evidence and they will have alot in a while (pregnant babies will give DNA)

Well honestly, your case is probably a fairly low priority. Since successful prosecution of the rapist will be unlikely (His defense will be that it was consensual and waiting 22 weeks probably means they have no physical evidence that the act was forced, having only your word against his)

As for how long it takes? I've caught a rapist in the act, I've caught them several minutes after the act, we've cleared cases years later. Just depends on a lot of factors.

Some rapists are able to make a clean getaway with a 22 minute head start. Imagine what they can do with 22 weeks.

Some rapists are able to get off by disputing the physical evidence. Image what they can do when there is no evidence.

I'd say yours will be a one in a million catch and conviction if it happens.

The actual time depends on the evidence present and the availability of the suspect. They may never catch him. The delay in reporting and the destruction of evidence will not make it easy.

Seriously???
Like any other crime, who knows, the rapist may never get caught...
