My story begins with the abduction of my children and I from the parking lot of our church preschool in Miami. An unknown assailant proceeded to carjack me and rape me four times in front of my two kids out in the Florida Everglades. After many hours we were returned to the church and I was left for dead on the floor of my van. Through great DNA technology, a superstar analyst and some great police work, my case was solved 6 months later when my rapist was swabbed after committing another crime. It took four grueling years to get to trial, but in the end he was sentenced to 7 life sentences for what he did to my kids and I....a life sentence for my son, one for my daughter, and 5 life sentences for my rape, torture and attempted murder. In the years since my trial, I have dedicated my life to speaking out in praise of police, forensic nurses and especially forensic science.
