    My daughter was raped by 3 men at 1028 n. Mozart and the police haven't even charged these men yet. My daughter is only 15! It's terrible how the law works, how we are left trying to prove ourselves to be right, and they walk out on the streets again. We have to prove the rape happened! Isn't DNA and audio recording from offenders phone proof enough? Guess not. Just because the reporting officer worded what my daughter said in a certain way, they are having a hard time charging these men......it sucks, the law sucks, and the reporting officer sucks too! I don't know what else to do but watch my daughter suffer everyday.

  • This is very sad and Iam very sorry for all the suffering your daughter has gone through. Rape Victims Advocates are a great organization who offer therapy if you are looking for support for her.
