Ariel Castro who is accused of kidnapping and imprisoning three kidnapped women in Ohio, pleaded not guilty. "A defendant has a right to enter their plea, whether it's guilty or not guilty. I think 99% of the time, they're going to enter not guilty." Sandra Hernandez, a program director with S.C.A.N. counsels people who are rape victims and says this part can be frustrating for the victims. "Knowing that we know the person might have committed this crime and why are they fighting it." Castro is facing 329 counts of rape torture, and murder. These three women who were rescued from his home in Ohio were held captive for ten years. This was Castro's first court appearance since everything came to light. "This is a case that more than likely is going to be a very high profile case." Hernandez estimates that a year will pass before the trial makes it to court. For the victims and any other victims of sexual assault, Hernandez has this advice. "The victims have to focus on their healing part, getting counseling services for the trauma that they've suffered." The best way for these victims to start healing is to be surrounded by support from their family and friends. If you need to contact SCAN, you can cal them at 724-3177.
