Distressing video is circulating on social media today of a nine-year-old girl claiming to be the subject of sexual abuse at the hands of her mother’s boyfriend.
The footage shows the distraught young girl, named Sophie, pleading with her maternal grandmother for help. The grandmother, however, seemingly dismisses the girl’s claims, telling her instead to feel good about scoring the lead role in a school play.
A GoFundMe page which appears to be set up by Sophie’s step-mother, Kourtney Chalmers, has since raised more than $67,000 for legal funds.
“We have been dealing with CPS, Law Enforcement, Lawyers, DFPS, Forensic interviews, and several doctors that are helping with Sophie’s recent medical issues in her private areas,” the campaign states.
Allegedly a judge has ordered the father cannot comment any further.— Sydney Watson (@SydneyLWatson) August 31, 2020

We obviously don't know the entire story or how truthful it is, but this video honestly makes me feel ill – especially listening to the guttural screaming.
