What courage this girl showed...I would love to give her a big hug....as a fellow survivor...I would love to have seen my abuser imprisoned ...instead he took the easy way out and overdosed! I'm glad he's dead, but will always regret that I didn't kill him myself. ( I would gladly have served time to have taken the law into my own hands.) At least I know my abuser won't abuse again...but as for this guy...he won't serve 12 years..he'll get out on i.e "good behaviour"...or any other excuse his parole officer will give.And theres a chance he will abuse again when he is released...once an abuser always! I hope he gets the crap beaten out of him inside!...they don't take kindly to child abusers in prison.
