Florida’s largest resort is getting a lot of attention after a new report found that more than 100 percent of the resort’s guests have been sexually assaulted in its three years of operation.
According to the latest statistics from the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCASA), the three-year average rate of sexual assaults at Florida’s six resorts is more than 300 per day.
NCASA, which is made up of some of the country’s most powerful organizations in protecting victims of sexual assault, released its findings on Monday.
The data also revealed that the vast majority of assaults occurred during non-sexual encounters.
“More than one in five of the assaults happened during nonphysical encounters, with one in 10 assaults occurring in the context of an ‘intimate relationship,'” according to the NCASS findings.
“In some cases, the victim was the one who reported the assault, or was forced to do so.”
The data shows that Florida’s top three resorts have experienced more sexual assaults than the average.
Diamonds International, the Florida resort that operates in the city of Ocala, has reported the most sexual assaults, followed by the resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Diamond executives have defended their policies on the issue, and are calling for more comprehensive training for their staff and the local police.
“I don’t know what the right answer is, but I am so disappointed in the response to this situation that I am calling for the immediate reinstatement of the state law,” Diamond International CEO James Karr said in a statement.
“The state needs to change the law so that it protects victims, not perpetrators.”
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has not yet responded to The Daily Beast’s request for comment.
