The victim is never to blame!!!!!! However proving that in court is nearly impossible. Many victims who do report sexual assault or rape find that there is no arrest or conviction. Because we are pursuing this We are treading on thin ice. We are going against a system that does not recognize or accept mentally challenged testimonies of what happened as they don’t know the words or terminology of what even occurred. They explain it in simply terms that the defense attorney tears apart. The person is innocent and relying on a mentally impaired person to prove them guilty is next to impossible. Survivors are upset because of their parents not doing anything about it and hold on to that resentment for years. If nothing else she doesn’t have one of those kind of parents. Next week how to deal with the trauma because of this.
