It seems even in the US abusers are allowed to get away with their crimes and serve ridiculously light sentences, due to inadequate laws and inadequate lawmakers. Legal Loopholes obviously exist why haven't they been closed down? I thought the States were supposed to be tough on criminals?
If you are of a delicate disposition, read this book with extreme care. I found I had to skip several parts of this story because I just could not bear to read about what this abuser did to this innocent child. I have to say that I found this overtly graphic and quite unnecessarily so on behalf of the author. I did not think it should have been or needed to be described so graphically or repeatedly. I formed the picture of this side of the story immediately, so subsequent descriptions were shocking, disturbing and unnecessary. It seems this week another story emerges in the US so similar to Steven's it made my flesh crawl.
Wherever Steven is now I hope he is resting in peace and wherever his abuser lands up I hope he then pays adequately for his crimes against the innocents of this world. I also hope Steven's family have now found some inner peace, Lord knows they deserve to.
