Missouri – The organization, Bikers Against Child Abuse is calling the decision to release admitted child rapist Aaron Fisher, a failure of the justice system.
The nationwide organization escorts abused children to court to face their victims, and they even pay for therapy if needed.
ABC 17 News talked to two local members from the Jefferson City area who say Judge Pat Joyce failed the victims, “absolute disbelief that there could be such a failure of this child”, Ratchet said.
For their security, the two men we interviewed go by the names Ratchet and Stache.
“Basically we are a bunch of volunteers who are tired of seeing kids go through this. We take calls from prosecuting attorneys, victim advocates, even the parent of an abused child can contact our organization, and if that child has to go through court or needs therapy, then we get involved in that child’s life”, Ratchet told ABC 17 News.
This past weekend their organization was devastated to hear the news that a child rapist walking the same streets as his victims, “After someone admits to something this heinous, and they have the testimony that he admitted to it, and then slowly but surely, the process gets skewed. Somebody starts asking for delays and continuances, we see this all the time with defense attorneys, it’s classic. They do it for a multitude of reasons. They hope the child forgets what the guy looks like, or they forget some details of the case. This one just drug on way to long. And like I’ve said, now there is a six-year-old child out there that has to live with these memories, and now not only is the child out there but so is his abuser, or her abuser”, Ratchet said.
