Sexual assault/ sex trafficking

My name is kat, I am 17 years old and this is my story.
2 years ago on January 16th, my best friend brought me to a house in Arlington Texas.
The owner of this house was a man named Timothy burns, (he does not deserve to be anonymous.)
A 43 year old that my once friend had met on a sugar daddy website in which he lied about his age claiming he was 23.
We had taken an Uber in which he paid for, knowing we didn’t have transportation, being 14 at the time.
Once arriving, he smoked weed with us and insisted we drink.
That night he raped us both and the next morning paid us both $500.
And with that we left.
I understood what happened, but not in the way I should’ve, two weeks after the incident, I sat in class when a police officer came In and called me out. I found out this happened to other girls, my “friend” that brought me over had tricked me. I denied all allegations but I had bled in the bed and my dna was everywhere.
Because of the small town I live in, it hit the news and soon our highschool in which we all attended was named.
Although my name was not put out, many kids at school slandered us, id sit in class next to kids talking about me getting raped. I did not understand the terminology of that word until it was shoved in my face by district attorneys and detectives, the power I thought I had was taken and I was soon named a victim, countless hospital visits because I wanted to kill myself, this man ruined my life, he ruined my arm and my leg because I didn’t know how to deal with the pain of being called a whore when I was hurting because of what this did to me.
I will never forget the look in his eyes as I told everyone in that court room what happened to me. I felt this way because rape victims are slandered, IM HERE TO USE MY VOICE, NEVER LET A MAN RUIN YOU, IM NOT A VICTIM, IM A SURVIVOR
