My 15 year old cousin ran away from her home. Her mom is stupid and does drugs and her step-dad is very abusive and is an alcoholic. She has never said her step dad is sexually abusive, but our extended family all believes that he is by the ways he treats her and his prior sex abuse charges.
She ran away about a month ago. She was picked up by the cops at a homeless shelter in a nearby town. Today she was sentenced to a YEAR in a juvenille detention center!! She is better off there than at home with her horrible parents, but she is being treated like a criminal for escaping a horrible home. My grandparents, mom, and other aunts and uncles were all there today and told the judge they want custody of her and all testified to how bad off her home life is. He still sentenced her to jail time for running away! We have been trying for years to get her out of that home and into family custody with no luck. CPS hasn't even helped out
