Can a 2-Year-Old Get Justice?

Posted: Updated:

A 2-year-old can't speak for themselves. It's up to adults to speak for them. And, I have a real concern over whether enough adults are speaking for a tiny toddler in West Virginia.

Back in February, a 19-year-old named Tyler Graham was arrested and charged with abusing a 2-year-old. The victim, the 2-year-old daughter of his girlfriend, contracted venereal warts during the alleged rape.

Graham was subsequently released on bail. Some outrage ensued. Not enough, in my opinion. The group Anonymous held a rally on the steps of the local courthouse. A week later, Graham was rearrested and his bond was revoked for getting close to the home of the victim.

But, nothing changed and on May 13, 2013, Mr. Graham was freed again.

While at America's Most Wanted, I covered the cases of some of the worst pedophiles known to man. And I learned one thing -- most sex offenders re-offend. Most are predators always looking for their next piece of prey.

While Mr. Graham is innocent until proven guilty, he will be free until he goes to court in September. I fear for the community and for this little girl. This is a local case that I am taking national -- because this 2-year-old deserves it.
