Is the culprit somebody you(the victim) know?
Were there any bystanders?
Was this case reported?
Was the culprit legally prosecuted?
Any other details to share?
The first time happened it was my cousin. He tried to kiss me when I was sleeping on a vacation with both our families. He is 2 years older than me but we were still young when that happened, but I thought it was wrong. So i reported it thru her younger sister, asked her to tell her mother (which is my aunt) and she didn't believe me. She said that maybe I was dreaming because I was asleep, and it didn't happened. So that's it. The first and last I told someone something happened to me and she refuse to believe me, just because I was a kid.
