The details are similar to the thousands of stories women tell about their assaults: She could barely keep consciousness; she remembers him lying on top of her; she was left in a driveway with her underwear gone and bruises on her thighs; she tried to escape the shame and the memory by attending college in another state. But one day, when she had returned to...
