On Friday, the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault and the Women's Advocacy Program launched its 'Pro Se Sexual Assault Protective Order Packet', which helps victims get a restraining order without an attorney.

You can call the Rape Crisis Center for help on filling out the sexual assault packet at 763-3232 or download the packet by clicking here .
