      There is a trial date set for October, but from experience, the trial could be drug out for 2, or even 3 years. That’s why MugWatch was created – because the man who molested my stepdaughter drug his trial out for more than 2 years. He was living and working in our community, as if nothing happened. We want molesters held accountable up to their court dates – not blending into the world around us as if they are harmless.
