LA - One brave child abuse victim speaks out, Gretna, 2009
"Sexually assaulted at age 8 by her father in her Gretna home, Rachel Fletcher did something rare and courageous: She told a concerned relative what happened. And when the case came to trial in a Jefferson Parish court two years later, she bravely testified against her father.
Fifteen years later, her father, David Boudreaux, is serving a life sentence in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola for aggravated rape."
Rachel is one brave woman, in my book!! Eight year old children know right from wrong.

Bless Ms. Gauthreaux for caring enough to ask an 8yo about her situation!! -- since Rachel's g-ma didn't get the hint w/ the monster bolted doors & phones off the wall.

It is refreshing to hear that a victim found her voice, in bringing this man (her own father), to justice.

Guilty verdict reached in just 26 minutes. This story gave me goose bumps and a glimmer of hope.The depths of which we are able to love will be measured by the depths we are able to love ourselves....et
