Assisted by The Justice League of Ohio and national legal experts from all over the country, the victim, referred to in court papers as Jane Doe, filed an “affidavit in support of arrest and prosecution.”
According to a written statement from The Justice League, the Knox County Prosecutor’s Office attempted to indict the victim’s attacker, but the grand jury issued a no-bill, which means the jury did not feel enough evidence was presented to indict the individual.
The statement stated the victim is taking this step on her own because she claims the grand jury has never seen the letters, and film found hidden away with the letters was never developed.
According to The Justice League, the affidavit, if successful, will provide a first-of-its-kind opportunity for a victim to seek criminal charges wherein the prosecutor’s efforts were unsuccessful.
The vicim is awaiting the court’s decision.
