This Woman Was A Victim Of Rape And Now Her Attacker Is Suing Her

Amanda East spends her days giving the voices in her head life on paper while juggling stacks of dirty dishes, unfathomable amounts of laundry, three dogs, a cat, a man-child husband, four children and all the chaos they create. She is certain her best writing will be accomplished from her eventual room in the nuthouse someday.

There is no act more devastating or personally intrusive than rape.

There is not one single way to more completely steal one's...well, everything. Rape leaves the victim feeling exposed, raw, and vulnerable. Sometimes, the only solace a victim can find in their recovery is justice. Knowing that their abuser is being held accountable can be an important step in moving forward.

For one California woman, justice seemed to be out of reach, as she was victimized by her attacker not once, but twice. After sitting in court while he plead no contest to the lesser crime of felony assault, she was served with a lawsuit that he filed against her. Claiming defamation of character, he tried to pull her back into his sick game of victimization.

This is just unbelievable.


Thankfully, the woman was represented by an attorney who was entirely in her corner and the case was heard by a judge with no patience for those who violate basic human rights.

I can only hope that she and her family now feel a sense of justice, and that they can finally put this painful chapter of their lives behind them.
