MONTPELIER, VT. — The Vermont National Guard says six reported sexual assaults occurred among its ranks within the last fiscal year.

The report says that half of the cases incurred a military administrative investigation. One additional case incurred a civilian criminal investigation.

Cathleen Wilson of HOPE Works, a group that provides counseling services to sex assault victims, tells WCAX-TV that this was the first time the number of victims of sexual assault has been made public.

Maj. Gen. Steven Cray says the guard plans to improve the reporting system for these types of crimes.

As of last May, the Vermont National Guard is compelled by law to provide an annual report on sex assault, gender discrimination and discrimination based on sexual orientation.
