And not in the repressed, haunting memory kind of way either. Though who's to guess at the victim's fragile mental state going forward.
No, this victim will have a permanent physical reminder of the crime.
This tale begins as all innocent tales of summer nights do — with booze and weed.
19-year-old Justine M. Gregoire worked with the 16-year-old female victim, and got the girl to fork over some $30 in cash for a ride to Rocky River from Justine's boyfriend, Jesse M. Naumilket. Once the trio were there, Jesse got some vodka and some pot and they all smoked. Then he made the 16-year-old an adult beverage, which he happened to spike with some pills.
The 16-year-old felt groggy and strange and "lost track of time."
The two douchewads who drugged the young victim have been arrested and charged with corrupting with drugs and felony assault. Why the assault? Well...
“There was no sexual assault,” Hudec said. “Her clothes were in disarray when they took her home at midnight but there was clearly no sexual assault.”
The girl got into the shower the following morning and noticed a new star tattoo on her right hip.
