I am a survivor of sexual assault on numerous occasions over a period of 2 years when I was between the ages of 10 and 12. I did the right thing and came forward when I was 17 and proceeded with the police. Everything was looking positive and things were looking good to find the man who I see as the devil to be guilty, it was definitely going to magistrates court until someone else came forward and said that he was abused by the same man. Having 2 people make accusations about 1 man took it to crown court where we had 15 charges to find him guilty on; the jury decided that he was not guilty for 4 charges and the remaining 11 charges came back inconclusive. The police applied for a retrial and it was granted, a retrial would take place 10 months after the first trial. The trial was over a period of 4 days and that's what the retrial was due to last, but on the first day of the retrial taking place, a day before I was due to go to court and give evidence, I received a phone call to say that the defence barrister argued legal rights all morning and persuaded the judge that it would be an unfair trial due to the jury found me to be 'lying' the first time round, and so the trial came to an abrupt end and the defender was allowed to walk free. I was left to pick up the pieces by myself. My whole world was torn apart and I felt shattered, nothing's changed and that's still the way I'm feeling, I feel betrayed by the legal system and believe there is no justice in this world! How do I get over this? How do I move on knowing that there's nothing more I can do to get piece for the pain and grief that I was put through? Please help!!
