002: Shannon; sexual abuse by young man in ward growing up

Welcome to Mormon Stories Australia!

In this second episode we follow the journey of Shannon. Shannon grew up in the church and is the daughter of Rob & Cynthia from episode 1. Since age 8 she was groomed by a young man several years older than her and subsequently abused sexually. This continued for many years. We review her process of struggling with this, especially the impact of family and friends not believing her allegations against the young man. Eventually she won a court case against him. Later on in the interview we review her transition out of Mormonism into another church.
