Editor's Note: April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In order to do its part to further community understanding of the victim experience, E-T has interviewed a Stephenville resident who agreed to share details of her 1986 attack and the events that followed. In order to ensure anonymity for the victim and her family, all names, including that of the convicted perpetrator, have been changed.

Laurie Smith described the start of the afternoon of her attack in July 1986 as a beautiful, summer day. Her two sons, Jonathan, 7, and Levi, 8, were home for summer vacation, and she was waiting to show her home to what she thought was a prospective buyer. The property was on the golf course, and Laurie remembers having the blinds open to allow him to see the view from her back windows. She remembers seeing golfers already at play nearby.
