Thanks for reading this week's SN&R!

On the cover: When a Sacramento sex worker is assaulted, the system often treats her like a criminal instead of a victim--if she's even comfortable reporting a crime in the first place. Raheem F. Hosseini and Scott Thomas Anderson report on how victims of some of the region's most horrible crimes don't always get the care and justice needed.

Also this week: A writer's dispatch from typhoon-ravaged Philippines, a profile of Sacramento State's basketball coach, and how to sign up for the city of Sacramento's new anti-bike-theft registry.
