A pregnant 13-year-old girl fights a long, painful legal battle in Kenya against a man who allegedly held her captive. She hopes for justice, but it may be long coming.
The US State Department calls Kenya “a major regional hub for trafficking.” After this young woman endured a traumatic physical and psychologically exam, she learned that the court would ask for more conclusive evidence. Another exam will be required. She was rescued after a priest noticed her at the home of her accused captor and made a report to local authorities. She has been rescued, but because of the long and complicated court process, justice will not come quickly.
