I have been doing a lot of thinking about what I have been going through. I am completely and utterly disgusted with the justice system in Massachusetts, and the Suffolk County DA Office.
The ADA actually asked me if I really thought that he [my rapist] made a mistake because “people sometimes change their minds “. He was insinuating that perhaps I was “giving him all the right signals” and then I “changed my mind”. I was so incredibly infuriated. I even didn’t give him a piece of my mind because I was just too shocked. Especially because I could see in his eyes that he was serious.
I have never EVER had feelings or sexual curiosities about my rapist EVER! That is why earlier that night I told him that I would NEVER SLEEP WITH HIM. I actually said those words to him that night. I don’t remember exactly what he said to provoke this statement from me. I never change my mind. I have never felt that way towards him, and I won’t sleep with someone if I am not into them. I have never been able to do that. Additionally I never sleep with roommates.
I just really can’t believe that there was never an attempt to get a statement from him. Especially because he has changed his story under oath on record during the restraining order hearing. An initial statement from him when the police report was made could have really helped my case. In my opinion, this is gross neglect regarding rape on the hands of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts .
And, if you read my blog, to top it off, he works for the Department of children and families….disgusting, people are not safe. He needs to be changed for this. He needs to be held responsible .
The justice system fails the majority of rape victims every day. There is rarely any justice for victims of rape.
