For almost four years we were held hostage by two perpetrators, with my kids in Nevada. We learned first hand the meaning of torture, mental abuse, verbal abuse and sexual physical abuse. When you escape you think it’s over. The then DA didn’t show up for his job. So in a last ditch effort all was pleaded down to child abuse. He served 6 years of a 12 year sentence. All other charges thrown out. Kidnapping etc. I had to spend ten years trying to terminate his parental rights. We were finally successful.
We have been battered by the system that is supposed to protect you. In this country, they don’t care what happens to woman and children! We have been stalked constantly, since his release from prison. It’s a “Good Old Boy mentality.” Welcome to the USA! No one wants to hear about this!
