In October 2011, two sisters, ages 14 and 15, whose names are being withheld to protect their privacy, came to StoryCorps to remember the horror of being sexually abused by their uncle, a police officer who was also their part-time caretaker.

This conversation took place 10 days after their abuser was found guilty of sexual assault.
