Raped, pimped out and jailed: The painful saga of Sara Kruzan
Sara Kruzan was a victim of rape and sex trafficking. As in the Marissa Alexander wrongful conviction case in Florida, this article similarly has, "No expert witness testified in Ms. Kruzan’s defense during her trial." What is up with that one??!! Did these folks just decide that she was just a prostitute, a lesser teen and blew her off to just wash her away without finding out how the 16 year old even got to such a status in life?
As was the case with Marissa Alexander, the Prosecutor in Sara's case said she (Sara) was NOT a victim of domestic violence!
This must read article continues..."Jurors were not told about the prolonged sexual abuse she’d suffered, and the court’s discretion to sentence her with parole as a minor was overlooked".
I am truly afraid to explore just how many such cases like this actually exist.
More to come!
