As you may recall, in 2010, an 11-year-old girl was gang-raped by a group of men and boys in Cleveland, Texas. Yesterday, the victim took the witness stand in Liberty, Texas, to testify against Eric McGowen, 20, the first of 14 adults to face trial (six juveniles also are charged in the crime). The girl, using a pseudonym, testified for an hour and a half. In the afternoon, the court took a 10 minute break. When proceedings resumed, McGowen had vanished.
