Concord Monitor July 22, 2019
Dozens of people wrote on the coalition’s Facebook posts that they had called ABC or written letters to voice their concerns about the upcoming interview and request that it be canceled indefinitely.
The Prouts and the coalition said airing the interview would contribute to a culture that silences victims and minimizes convicted perpetrators’ crimes.
“Sexual assault is already one of the most underreported crimes in our society,” said Amanda Grady Sexton, the coalition’s director of public affairs. “Airing this interview sends the message to victims that even after you find the strength to come forward, endure the criminal justice process and justice is finally served, the convicted predator will still be celebrated, valued and given the opportunity to discredit your experience.”
