Linda has been waiting for months to hear from the Mecklenburg District Attorney's office about whether her case will move forward. Then she gets a call. We rejoin Linda on the winding road for an update and a closer look at the burden of proof.
She Says: A Public Conversation
Last Thursday, WFAE held a Public Conversation with She Says podcast host Sarah Delia, law enforcement and others about whether justice is being served in Mecklenburg County. The event was broadcast live from McGlohon Theater in uptown Charlotte on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018. Panelists included Delia, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Deputy Chief Katrina Graue, Lt. John Somerindyke of the Fayetteville Police Department, and Crystal Emerick, founder and executive director of Brave Step, a nonprofit that supports people impacted by sexual abuse.
She Says: The Oath
Linda goes back to court and comes face to face with the man charged in her assault as she attempts to get a no-contact order. We hear how the podcast has impacted her life and what the future of her case looks like. Stay with us through the very end of the episode to hear a message from two familiar voices.
She Says: What We Haven't Told You
This episode we share with you what we haven’t told you. Additional evidence in Linda’s case. Why we think this mysterious DNA hit occurred. And we find out how many hospitals in North Carolina have nurses specially trained to complete a sexual assault examination.
She Says: They Say
In this episode, we hear from Linda’s family about how life has changed for everyone since the assault in 2015. We also tell the story of another Charlotte woman who tried to file a police report but was turned away.
For the past year, reporter Sarah Delia has worked to unwrap the case of "Linda," a Charlotte-area woman who was sexually assaulted by a stranger in 2015… and is still struggling to find answers. In a world full of #MeToo’s, justice might look as swift as one woman speaking up, but for many, resolution is a long and winding road.
