The compelling chronicle of a child betrayed!
After hearing May's account of her life, the Judge tells her, “I cannot even imagine a young girl your age being able to fabricate half the things you have told me. It grieves me greatly that someone as young as you has been exposed to these kinds of horrors. It is not the kind of life that anyone, regardless of who they are, should be forced to endure. The only thing I can see to do is remove you from the environment you now live in. There are very few alternatives. I can see no other way out for you. No matter what happens, from here on in, I want you to remember that what I am about to do is by no means meant to be a punishment.”
