Though free of carnal knowledge, Sharshente remains in jail

The young girl is being released from the children’s home and will be back with her mother for the Christmas.

Mother of Alleged Rape Victim
“I would like to plea to those nine persons that was there—I’m talking to individual—please open their hearts and if you make any mistake, please go back and make a trial for that man because he is guilty. He is guilty.”

Duane Moody
“So what do you want now to happen?”

Mother of Alleged Rape Victim
“I need justice not for me but for my daughter because they took away her pride, they took away her childhood, everything a child has. I need justice for my daughter; not for me, for my daughter.”

Duane Moody
“If you were given the opportunity to meet Winston again, what would you do? What would you say to him?”

Mother of Alleged Rape Victim
“That’s a hard question and a hard answer because if it would be in my hands I would make him disappear. But it’s not in my hands. What would I like for my daughter? She can just jump to another page and live a happy life after this. I know that pain will never come off, but maybe counseling or something will help her. My daughter knows I love her with all my heart and I never thought something like this would happen to her.”

While he was freed of Carnal Knowledge, Sharshente will spend seven months in prison for a conviction for grievous harm and an additional three months for child maintenance. He is to be released in September of next year.
