Treat sexual assault as a serious crime
Thanks to you and many others nationwide who publicly shared your outrage over Austin Smith Clem getting a probation-only sentence for his conviction on three counts of rape, Judge James Woodroof has filed an order agreeing to re-sentence Clem.
We raised our voices together to demand justice for his victim, 20-year-old Courtney Andrews. Now the neighbor and "family friend" who sexually assaulted her, verbally threatened her life and the lives of her parents, is likely to go to prison.
