“He said you’re a smart young girl, my baby. Do you have a boyfriend? I said no and he said since you do not have a boyfriend now that you’re much more mature, you’re now mine, I am your boyfriend.
He said I used to teach you some things when you were small. I asked him what things so that I could record him with my phone. My phone was under the throw pillow because I thought he wanted to confess to what he did seven years ago but I was unable to record him.
He said don’t you remember, me and you used to play together, I used to teach you some things when you were small.
Me and you had a contract and I asked him what contract? He asked me to sit on his legs and I said no and he said to you that when you were small you were not afraid. Now you’re afraid.
He began touching me sexually and he had asked me to bring him some water. When I went to the kitchen he also followed me and it was at this point that my mother and the other men (CCTV company staff) came in.”
