Two girls in their early teens were abused and exploited by their mother in the 1980s, and now they say they are the victims of a national security crime.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News, the young women — who were born and raised in Los Angeles but now live in a suburb of the city — said their mother, Kimberly Carter, abused them, sexually assaulted them and stole their money.
“It was just a terrible thing to go through,” said Lauren.
“The worst part of it is that I know I’m not alone, and I know there are others like me.
It just doesn’t matter that we’re all so much younger, just because we’re in a different country.
It really does make you feel like, What if I did this to somebody else?
I’m so young and I’m still in diapers.”
The girls spoke out after discovering documents on the Internet that show a Los Angeles Police Department report detailing the abuse of two of their older sisters, which the two sisters said they never received.
The document, which was obtained by ABC News and was obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, was part of a police investigation into the abuse.
According to the documents, the sisters were molested in their home by Carter in the early 1980s.
“We have been told that there are many more children who were abused by their mothers in the ’70s and ’80s, but we have not seen them,” Lauren said.
“We don’t have the information to prove that we did this.
But we have the truth to prove it.
We feel that we have no choice.
We were the ones that were abused.””
We’re really trying to get justice,” said another of the girls, Sarah.
“For us, it was a lot of pain, and it’s a lot to feel like you are the only one who has been hurt, because we have other people who have been hurt.”
The abuse of the sisters occurred in the years of Carter’s involvement with the women, when they were between 12 and 14 years old.
It was the first time the girls were abused, and their parents said they were “very close to death” when they saw the abuse at the hands of their daughter’s mother.
“My mother was the one who abused us,” said the girl, who is now 19.
“I was like, ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’
I was so scared.
My mom is like, Why?
Why didn’t I tell you?
She was so angry, she said, ‘I didn’t know.’
I felt like I was being hurt, but I just knew she didn’t like me.”
The siblings said that when they learned that their mother was also a child abuser, they tried to protect their older sister.
“She told us to hide our faces because we’d be seen, and we didn’t want anyone to know we were abused,” said Sarah.
“I tried to hide it from her, and then she was like ‘You should hide it, you should hide what you’re doing, and you shouldn’t hide it.
You’re going to get in trouble for it.'”
After a police report was completed, they learned they were not the only victims of abuse, and that the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services had investigated and found no evidence of a crime against them.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
