Daisy Coleman’s mom chronicles life after rape


Daisy Coleman went public about her rape, at the age of 14, by a 17-year-old classmate.

After rape victim Daisy Coleman’s third suicide attempt, the teen’s mother spoke out about her family.  “I’m here to tell you that if you speak ill of my family or to my daughter, I want you to know that you are a coward and a bully and you are contributing to the evil in this world.”
