As an innocent 16-year-old, I thought my senior boyfriend hung the moon. To hear him tell it, he did. I had no idea he would forcefully take something that could never be given back.

Sometimes it happens out of the blue by a stranger and sometimes by someone the victim thought and hoped could be trusted. However, we have options that can help guard against such situations . . .
