Me and someone very close to me has been living in a nightmare reality, and I have no idea what to do or where to turn to. I hope that someone in this community has some tips or could point me in the right direction.
I am a new firearm owner and USCCA member because there’s a lot of bad people who know about this woman close to me with a pretend name of Jen. Not long ago Jen was sexually assaulted in her home by two guys. One of which was captured shortly after, the second guy got away and came back to assault her again before he was finally caught too. I personally kept in-touch with a cop via text the entire time who was watching over her case and updating me about anything that happens.
So both guys were supposed to be charged for rape at the very least. At the beginning of this pandemic, I got word from the cop that the 2nd guy had a lawyer that was trying to get him off those charges. Somehow some way this man went from getting a long sentence, to getting a reduced sentence, to proposed house arrest, to being free of any charges as if nothing happened. Apparently he had a really good lawyer and Covid-19 was a great excuse. It all sounds like BS but this is what happened.
After this guy was exonerated from everything and released, I kept in-touch with the cop who tracked his location everywhere he went and alerted me if he got close to us. He stalked Jen and our houses very often, and occasionally confronting her and saying awful things. Later on we find out this is the same man that killed her family member years ago, and apparently the only way to get him locked up again on any serious charge including a past murder was to set-up this criminal and use Jen as bait. Basically she either had to be beaten or sexually assaulted by him again to arrest him so this time he can be put away for a long time.
For some reason, we had no choice but to go through with this plan if he were to be put away again. Now Jen is even more traumatized and he is being charged for rape (again), a past murder, and is supposed to be getting life. His same lawyer is trying really hard to get him released again. We don’t know what’s going to happen but he is very aggressive about protecting his client and it almost seems arrest is not going to keep him away. He has cheated the system once and now our lives seem perpetually at risk.
Jen is not emotionally stable enough to be around firearms nor protect herself in any way. How do I prepare for such a worst-case scenario? I am not always with her and the criminal is very clever but seems less interested with me. Jen is his main target. He knows where we live and it also seems he’s immune to the law thanks to his lawyer who’s just as evil as he is. None of this seems real but it is and I would appreciate any help I can get.
Apparently it’s unlikely but if he’s released from his charges once again there’s a very real chance he could kill her.
