Survivor23, I'm sorry that the wheels of justice are spinning where this person is concerned. It sounds as if he's pleaded to a lesser charge if he's waiting for sentencing. How and why he's permitted to travel, etc., is beyond me, especially given that he's obviously a predator.
I don't know if this will help you process this, or not, but the Legal System is in dire need of overhaul. Perhaps, it's never been about "justice" as much as clearing the dockets. We've become such a culture of ill-placed tolerance and labels that the defense attorney is probably digging for excuses for her client. "He can't help it because he's been diagnosed with _____." There's ALWLAYS an excuse and a label to point at for the excuse. Judges, Courts, lawmakers, and even most members of the psychological/psychiatric communities are unable to acknowledge that there simply are "bad people" out there that cannot ever, ever, EVER be "cured" or "helped." There are some people out there who are predators. And, this failure to call a spade what it is creates a quagmire in the Courts.
I will never "see" justice for what the exspath has done to me. Even though I have physical evidence of his financial misdeeds, he will never face even being charged, let alone experience a fraction of the anxiety that he cause me to experience. He has a State job, an annual income of 60K, no financial obligations (since he abandoned them all), and used me and my money for his own ends and is arguing about having to pay alimony that amounts to 2 tanks of gas, per week. And, this is just the way that it is. There is one "good thing" about my experiences in that I have the opportunity to speak to people via media, etc., about predators, our own vulnerabilities, and how to "spot" the "red flags" before we are destroyed.
Perhaps, Survivor23, after this whole ugly mess is settled, you'll be compelled to engage in victim advocacy or awareness. This type of activity can be emotionally cathartic and healing, as long as it doesn't become an obsession. "Victims," as far as I've experienced, do not have "rights," on any level. Legal language suggests that punitive damages awarded to victims will cause them to be "made whole." This is not true - there is no amount of momey that will ever cause a victim to be "made whole," ever again. Victims are not afforded the right to face the predators who have harmed them - they are required to sit in silence unless they're called to testify. Even then, they are only "allowed" to answer direct questions. They are not permitted to speak about what their attackers did, what the aftermath was, and how the attacker's actions have impacted their lives, since. Oh, sure.....there's a point when people are allowed to speak out, but it's under very controlled circumstances and the threat of "contempt of Court" is a looming spectre. Meanwhile, the accused sits in their courtoom seat and experiences no other emotion than annoyance that their machinations have been temporarily interrupted. Maybe, this is your mandate, Survivor23 - to make changes for victims. Who knows? But, you've had these horrific experiences for some "reason" and purpose. Always remember that you are priceless in this vast Universe, and you've survived these experiences for "A Reason."
I wish you the very, very best in this process Survivor23. May you find some peace and closure. My brightest blessings to you.
