Sex dating in lancaster south carolina
Break the Cycle, which publishes "report cards" on state laws against teen dating violence, gave South Carolina an automatic F for its failure to protect people in dating relationships. 30, 2013, Sierra Landry, at 18, was shot in the face and killed by her ex-boyfriend, 18-year-old Tanner Crolley, in Lancaster, S. Jessica Landry told Crimesider that Sierra was 16 when she met Crolley and that the two had been dating for a little over a year when she was killed.
Landry said the relationship was tumultuous from the start.
Landry is now fighting to implement stricter protections against teen dating violence in South Carolina.
A petition started by Landry and her husband asks the state legislature to create "Sierra's Law," which would allow people under the age of 18 to get an order of protection against an abusive partner; it has has drawn over 294,000 signatures.
Sierra Landry was a 16-year-old cheerleader with good grades and aspirations of becoming a model when she began dating a schoolmate who would eventually end up harassing, beating and ultimately killing her, Sierra's stepmother, Jessica Landry, told CBS News' Crimesider.And according to a study done by the Department of Justice, girls and young women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rate of intimate-partner violence -- almost triple the national average."There is a misconception that if a relationship isn't serious, there can't be serious abuse - and that is just not the case," Escobar said."We, as parents, noticed all kinds of red flags and we did everything we could to make that relationship no more and of course, that didn't go over too well," Landry said.According to Landry, Crolley controlled Sierra, physically abused her, got her into trouble with the law, limited her access to her family and even convinced her to drop out of high school.
She provides direct support services to victims of incest, sexual assault/abuse, and attempted sexual assault to include, family, members and significant others.
