Hello, my name is Erin. I met Timothy when I was turning 11. He is 6 years older than me, so he was 16-17, he was in 11th grade, lives in the same town as me & knows my older brother. He started to message me from his own profile. I wouldn’t add him and I told him that because I didn’t know him. So, he made a fake account. A week goes by and I tell him I don’t want to be his friend because I found out he was fake. A year goes by, after he tried to contact me several times. He made another fake account, “gio”. He made a one direction page, commented on my photo. I thought he was a girl, so I gave him my kik. I was 12 turning 13 in 7th grade. I stopped contact with him because I got a boyfriend. When me and my boyfriend broke up, gio “magically” came back. We were talking for a few months when he “magically” disappeared. He texted me asking if I was Erin and told me he went away to get help (in reality he went to jail for 6 months for making an 11 year old send him pictures and for having 4 cellphones & a computer when he wasn’t supposed to have electronics at all) we would talk & he was so good at what he did, he would send VIDEOS of the “guy” talking about what we were talking about. I get into high school & try to kill my self because Timothy is harrasing me (not knowing Gio is Tim). I come back & get a FaceTime call from Gio. (Odd because I knew his “camera was broken”) he started off nice & asked me to get naked for him and dance & I said no, I don’t like that. He started to get angry and tell me things that no one knew about my family ( where’s I lived, where my dad worked, where my sister lived, my dads work, I can name more but I’m shaking writing this), he said if I didn’t do what he wanted, he would come to my house, kill my family, rape me and take me somewhere. I gave him what he wanted. I go to school the next day, he felt so guilty he told me who he was. He also told me to kill myself and sent me pictures of his cuts. His mother worked in the school so they didn’t call the cops. They called my father to come & get me because “they had a feeling he was stalking me” ( At this point I had no idea) my father comes & gets me& I just go to my friends house. I told them everything. They wanted to kill him but I said no, I have to get JUSTICE. So, months later I end up having PNES seizures. At that time I was 15, November of 2015. I told them everything. About 9-12 cops were in my room. I told them everything and anything. They opened an investigation. His good friend who I met at school (because I was so messed up, I had to go to a disability school) he actually came and put himself as a witness and helped the case SO much because he knew Tim more than I did (so I thought) I put a headpiece in that records & I called Tim, saying everything he did. All he said was I’m sorry. He arrested him. sentencing hearing in dec ‘16. Originally the deal was 1 year 4 months to 2 years 6 months. I was aloud to say what I wanted, so I wrote it down and I spoke. The judge changed it to 1 year 4 months to 4 years. Now it is April 2019. I had to ask the court to release him on parole because if he maxes out, he doesn’t get a parole officer. The parole denied it but the state granted what I wanted. He gets out April 22nd 2019. I don’t remember much at all, because of the trauma. But I am HERE. And proud.
