Candie Mullins started this petition to West Virginia State Senate and

5 years ago our world as we knew it, came crashsing down. My son and my nephew had been sexually abused by a man that was loved and trusted (currently my ex brother in law) . STD testing at 9 years old, therapy after therapy, Dr. Appointments, court dates, interview after interview, a sucide attempt, 5 medications daily, complex PTSD, and that is just the beginning. As time went on I placed my faith in Mercer County Justice system. For 5 years i would call, go the the courthouse and speak to the victims advocate faithfully. Court dates was usually rescheduled.. The monster was on the run for 6 months. Recently we finally had a court date for a trial. Meetings to make sure the boys could and would handle it.  We was finally going to have our day in court. Until my phone rings yest another meeting.. Only this time to inform us of the 3 term rule that applys in WV, meaning that after indictment you have to go to trial within 3 jury sessions. Somehow my sons case was passed around and shuffled for the last 5 yeats. We had court today in fact however it was not a day or justice but injustice because of a plea deal he wont even serve as much time as some people serve for crimes that doesnt destroy childern and familes. I understand criminals in fact has rights too but for heinous crimes such as sexual abuse if it takes 10 years to go to trial you deserve that trial date a chance to be served justice instead of what boys got..  Not only was justice delayed but also denied.
