“One particularly rewarding case that came through our office involved an 11-year-old girl who was sexually abused. The child’s family was contacted and helped through the legal process, the perpetrator was convicted, and the child was referred for counseling. Without the family's cooperation, the defendant would have gotten off the hook and would only have targeted someone else. We need Hispanic victims to come forward and stay with the case to help us get convictions. When they do, it helps the entire community.”
