On November 25, 2019, Jacob O'Connor raped Eliana Mora. O'Connor was invited over to her house. O'Connor and another witness pressured Eliana into taking weed. Despite declining the offer, O'Connor and his friend persisted. Soon after that, Eliana became intensely high, wavering in and out of consciousness. Upon waking up from falling unconscious, she found that O'Connor was fingering her without consent. Eliana kept falling in and out of consciousness, now waking up to O'Connor raping her. She was unable fend for herself in her high. She was not able to say no. A while after being raped, she was able to gather the courage to confront him about his actions, which he replied "yeah, you weren't not moving. You looked like a dead body. I was going to stop, but didn't"

Eliana took this case to the police, who treated her horribly. They invaded her privacy, asking her pointless questions about the type of sex it was. After a detective was hired, the detective attacked Eliana for failing to be "lady-like" and for smoking weed instead of helping her achieve justice. The cases were dropped.

This case infringes on Eliana's rights. Eliana undergoes therapy. She is diagnosed with PTSD from this event and to help her further, and has been prescribed with antidepressants. Eliana has been severely traumatized, even going at lengths to end her own life. She does not deserve any of this pain. She was not able to fight for herself. She was not able to say no. She was not able to achieve justice. She was denied the right to justice. That can change. Take the step to change an occurring problem in our society- rape. Eliana is not alone, and we will make that clear. This maybe one case, but one case will lead to many. Pushing for justice in one case will result in more justices. 

We can give Eliana the justice that was denied to her.
