(Athens, Georgia) – 11/24/2014 – Athens, Georgia is best known as a quaint, southern, college town. Years ago, a two year old African American baby girl was raped and tortured, at the age of two in Athens-Clarke County. This rape and torture continued for an extensive period of time. The exact time frame? We’re uncertain. We are certain however; that District Attorney Ken Mauldin sat on the executive board of a non profit known as The North Georgia Cottage. A 501(3)C with a mission statement that reads, “The Cottage provides intervention, advocacy, referrals, and support for survivors and families impacted by child abuse and sexual assault. The Cottage also raises awareness and provides prevention education about these issues.” The Little Girl, her biological mother and one of the men who actually tortured her, were sent to The North Georgia Cottage to be examined and interviewed after one rape.
