Teens’ sexual encounter ignites a firestorm against family

14:48 Oct 12 2013 Kansas City, MO, USA

A family is being attacked after their 14-year-old daughter was videotaped having sex with a high school senior.

Interviews and evidence initially supported the felony and misdemeanor charges that followed.

Yet, two months later, the Nodaway County prosecutor dropped the felony cases against the youths, one the grandson of a longtime area political figure.

The incident sparked outrage in the community, though the worst of it was directed not at the accused perpetrators but at a victim and her family. In the months that followed, the girl's mother lost her job, and her children were routinely harassed. When it became too much, they moved, but the attacks went on.
