“First and foremost, accountability. Acknowledgment that this happened. That this isn’t something these kids made up by any way shape or form. And ultimately making sure that not just my client, but all these other kids get the right support, both through their families and counseling to help them to…I don’t want to say ‘recover’. That’s not the right word. I can’t even begin to imagine.” – Thomas J. Mortati, Supervising Attorney Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP
