Following the outcry of the Stanford swimmer rape case, California legislators passed a new law this year that redefines what constitutes rape and guarantees a prison sentence for anyone found guilty of committing such a crime.

Capradio’s Health Reporter Ja’Nel Johnson spoke with a sexual assault survivor about the new law.

Johnson also looked at California’s new Right to Try law for people with life threatening illnesses. She joins Insight to discuss both.
