    In this small town how could no one know what was going on. What were the parents doing that they lived with? someone didn't care at all. For one person's sin many will suffer. But god is faithfull to deliver them all.

    I don't think it is right to be calling someone an animal if you knew them why didn't you tell what was going on Courtney. They are still people who desperately need help only God can give it to them not the system. Thanks Courtney!!!

    Im sure the "system" will indeed remember the "real victim" but in the mean time these two ignorant individuals should and need to be punished to the fullest as this does not make sense.

    I PRAY AND HOPE THE SYSTEM REMEMBER WHO THE REAL VICTIM IS.
