Our speaker today was Nancy Larson - the Community Liaison officer of the Pinal County Attorney's office.
Nancy has been focusing on sexual assault awareness.  She showed a powerful and disturbing video of the testimony of a 96-year old woman who was exploited financially, emotionally abused and sexually abused including rape by her grandson with whom she was living.  The problem in prosecuting a case like this is the person's age - people (including juries) tend to not believe the stories told by elderly people.  Not one of her extended family members supported her in the trial of her grandson who was ultimately convicted and put away for a long time.  The grandson's motives in doing this abuse can not be fathomed of explained.
