It took seven years for her to find out who her alleged rapist was. Without the backlog she could have known immediately (KTRK)

On Jan. 4, 2007 she drove to visit a friend and her car got stuck in a ditch near West Tidwell Road.

"I got stuck in the mud with my car," she said.

A man who she didn't know offered to help push her out of the mud. He did, and when the car was out of the mud, the good Samaritan became just the opposite. He struck her in the head and raped her, she said.

She shares in her own words the emotional toll that sexual assault took on her.
