"They send a message to other children that they won't be believed and supported when they come forward," said Madison Lightfoot of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence.
The coalition called some of the views outlined in the letters alarming, including one in which a sex offender treatment provider put the word "victim" in quotations marks and went on to say, "I am aware that her 'victim' was truly the pursuer in this case."
Another letter writer said Torbick "is not a threat to others or to society," and a lawyer who volunteered with her at a summer camp said, "I would not hesitate for a moment to welcome her back to camp."
Some of the letters came from those who work directly with children, including camp volunteers and employees of the Bedford School District, where Torbick once worked as a counselor. Parents in that district are calling on school leaders who supported Torbick to resign.
"We will continue to stand with this brave victim that came forward and work to make sure that the professionals that defended this offender in this case have access to the training and education that's clearly needed," Lightfoot said.
