17-Year-Old Sexual Assault Victim, Faces Charge For Naming Attackers

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

This woman (I refuse to call someone a 'girl' at 17) being charged with contempt in court for letting people know who harmed her is horrifying.

Not only is her freedom of speech being unreasonably violated to protect the privacy of her attackers, but she is also having the threat of 180 days in jail along with a 500$ fine hanging over her head. This is the perfect example of how much justice the system offers people who have been victimized.

This is to say NOTHING of the fact that perhaps those who sexually assault others SHOULD be named in public by their victims, so that others will avoid them and not end up injured as well. The entire situation is disgusting.
