Correct answer is: 97%

According to RAINN, only about 46% of all rapes are ever reported to law enforcement. Of reported rapes, only 5% even result in an arrest, and 97% of all rapists will never spend a day in jail. http://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/reporting-rates

Have you ever wondered why rape is one of the most underreported crimes? Survivors have many reasons for choosing not to report, but one of them is assuming law enforcement won't help them.
