“Abby simply asks that you respect her wishes and the justice process as this case moves forward,” the statement read. “We trust that justice will be done. On behalf of Abby, we ask that you be sensitive to the well-being of this child and give her the time and space she needs — that any of us would desire for a member of our own family or loved one who suffered as she has.”
“Abby needs and wants some time and space to physically and emotionally heal,” the statement read. “It is going to be a long process in pursuit of justice for Abby and for Abby to get physically and emotionally stronger. We do not intend to have this case tried in the press.”
