Full interview with Rouse children now adults

Lucritia Rouse of Marty, one of the alleged victims, recently released a written public statement, Rouse, now 26, was 6 years old at the time of the raid that led to the arrests of her accused uncles.
Rouse recalls being sent to a white foster family who put all the children to work on their farm. She remembers being separated by DSS(Dept. of Social Services) and put before lawyers to be perjured to.
“These lawyers and the foster parents all said that we all could go home and be home with our moms; that this will be okay to lie and we could go home” Rouse said in her statement. “So we all lied to see our family again, and that was a lie.”
“After all that, we never got to see or hear from our family, like the lawyer said we would, and we kept moving around from foster home to foster home. I dropped out of school because of the pain my family went through; because of our last name and our history that was never told by anyone,” Rouse recalled. “No understanding, just judging us by not knowing our family history or what us children went through.”
Rouse stated that she and the other children have suffered a lot of stress and pain from being lied to by lawyers who convinced them to make these allegations against their relatives.
“All I want is my uncles back home with us once again. A happy family like any other family in America,” she said.
“I, Lucretia Rouse, ask for your help and for the right justice for my family and my uncles. Please help me seek justice for my innocent uncles … This is my story.”
