Celebrating one victory…a molester behind bars.
I am very excited today, as one of the young people I am working with now in Ventura has seen her perpetrator pay for his crime. Sadly, she was molested by her step-father from the ages of 7 to 14. Fortunately, he was convicted and is serving a 22 year sentence inprison, and from there he is to go to a mental hospital – an entirely appropriate sentence for the sexual molestation of a child. I am relieved to see that not all perpetrators get away with their crime. Her victory gives me hope and presses me forward to reach out to more victims, helping them speak out and get the healing and justice they deserve.
