John trusted Diane--he had no reason not to--so imagine his horror when he woke being violated by the very woman he thought would never hurt him. He didn’t understand what was going on, but she simply told him to “hush.” When the strange nightmare ended, John began to comprehend what had occurred: he’d been drugged and assaulted.
He thought his trauma was over when he left Diane’s room. Little did he know things would only get worse. John reported what he believed was a crime, but the police didn’t listen. In fact, they did the opposite, and rained down harassment, threats, and questionable tactics to make John’s claims go away.
Meanwhile, John continually asked himself how Diane could do such a thing to him? How did it happen? Why did it happen? In this true account of one man’s horrific retelling of sexual assault and a failed legal response, John hopes to bring light to what can happen to just about anyone--male or female--despite trust and vague echoes of safety.
