Description
A young teenager from Albany, USA, decided to tell how she got involved in a sex nightmare to warn other girls. One winter evening, together with a friend, she accepted the invitation to go secretly to one of her brother's friends' home. She found there were another four boys there. She was invited to drink alcohol and then she doesn't remember what happened. But she was left near her home, in the snow, out in the dark.

"My mother told me she found me outside, left for dead, and when she heard me trying to get to the door, she thought it was a dog scratching. I was weak and could have died in the below freezing temperatures", recalls the young girl.

Next thing she knew, she was in the ER getting blood drawn and having various tests done. The doctors examined the rape kit and verified the violation. It was only later that the girl learned that her best friend, had been raped, too.

On Twitter and Facebook, she was called a skank and a liar and people encouraged her to kill hersel. Twice, she tried to take her own life.


But the girl got lucky when Anonymous got involved in her case. #justice4Daisy has trended on the Internet, and pressure has come down hard on the authorities who thought they could hide what really happened.

A special prosecutor is going to reopen the case now. This is a victory, not just for her, but for every girl.
