A judge in California has taken the extraordinary step of holding a 17-year-old alleged rape victim in juvenile detention. Why?
She failed to show up to court as a key witness against her alleged rapist, Frank William Rackley Jr. Prosecutors say he is a career criminal and a serial rapist.
Lisa Franco, the alleged victim's attorney, says her client is terrified to testify because she's afraid for her safety.
Franco talks with Ashleigh Banfield this morning and explains why her client should be released.
You could definitely see your expertise within the paintings you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who aren't afraid to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.
