At the time of assaults I was age 12-14.
I am currently 30 years old.
The Assaults happened in VA and SC. I was assaulted by Dad's girlfriend's son I kept it hush hush in fear of ruining my fathers sobriety until my boyfriend at the time came out and told everyone. I took it to court but dropped the case out of fear. I do believe this something that happens a lot where children are assaulted and scared to tell anyone. It will keep happening if the one is not punished in my eyes. The biggest thing I learned was that YOU are always worth more then allowing something like this to continue, even if it hurts others.
