I'm so sorry you had to go through this! It's unbelievable, they shouldn't let a raping piece of filth run on the loose. Haven't they found evidence? They should be throwing him behind bars. Have you trie talking to the Judge about this and filing complaints?

I'm so sorry. I know it can be hard right now, but you did all that you could do. The justice system is very messed up. I am so proud of you for trying though, just hang in there.

I'm so sorry. They shouldn't let him walk free. Seriously. What if he hurts anyone else? Letting him walk free is so fucked up. Forgive me for the language please.

I'm so proud of you for even reporting it. So many victims would be too scared simply because of the shambles that is the justice system in the UK. You're so strong. Don't give up.

Kokoro,

Here's something to try: If he did it to you, he has probably done it to someone else, too. Or if not, he may try to do it again to someone new. Try to find the others if you can. Most girls don't speak up when they are raped unfortunately. So do not think that just because you don't see a lot of girls complaining about him that he did not do something bad to them. Keep your eyes peeled and you may meet others. Maybe if there are more of you testifying, you will be able to convict him. If you can get them to file complaints or talk to a police investigator, the additional information they will provide might help. Ask a lawyer what more you need. If this guy goes to your school or if he might have preyed on other girls that attend it, you could ask your school principal to do an announcement appealing to the other girls and asking them to talk to your lawyer.

Ask some police officers if there are other ways to bust him. Maybe one of them will be willing to go undercover. If he tries to rape a police officer he is definitely going to jail.

Don't think that it is all for nothing. Your attempt to bust him might have been enough to scare him straight. Even if not, attempting to bust a bad guy does create a paper trail and will give law enforcement people more information about him if he tries something with someone else in the future. Not only that, but all of the people who know what happened to you will be keeping an eye on him. This will make it much more likely that someone will get him in trouble if he steps out of line just a little. People won't give him as many opportunities. He will have a harder life.

I thought of something else:

Not every girl has the courage to stand up for themselves like this.

You set a good example. If you can give any encouraging words to other girls, or tips on how you built your courage, you might inspire others to go to court!

You can still make a difference!

Even if they don't prosecute criminally you can still sue the b in civil court for monetary compensation. In civil court in the US, the judgement is based on a "more likely than not" basis and some civil cases can even have jury trials, so if you follow that avenue if it is available to you, you will still get some sort of justice.

Would you mind sharing a little more details because maybe there's a reason you didn't go to court.
