“I leave my house afraid because I can find him,” says AndreaThe family denounces that he is breaking the restraining order because he lives 300 meters from Andrea’s houseThe convicted of sexual abuse of his granddaughter has left the jail “for immediate death” Andrea’s grandfather abused her for four years in Andújar, Jaén. The abuse began when she was barely 13 years old and she reported it when she was 17. The man was sentenced to more than 10 years in prison but, “due to imminent death”, he has been free for a few months, for which he has only been in prison. jail for just over three years. He now lives 300 meters from Andrea’s house and, according to a complaint, he has broken the restraining order. “He wants to challenge us,” says the young woman. When she sees him, terrible situations come to her mind, “those I wouldn’t wish on anyone,” she says excitedly. She doesn’t want the person who shattered her youth to be near hers day in and day out. “She had me threatened,” she recalls. Her parents worked in the hotel industry and she spent many afternoons with her grandparents. He told her that if she told anything about her, her grandmother was going to die, because she was sick. She invented a movie full of fears until she, at the age of 17, decided to tell it to prevent her from doing the same thing to other children in her family. “I couldn’t allow that,” says Andrea, after seeing how she behaved. “The monster was in the family” “I never would have imagined that my father was doing that to the treasure in my house,” says Manoli, Andrea’s mother. “I lacked a spark, a second, to seek the ruin of my life”, she confesses, because the only thing she thought about was “killing him”. Coming back to an experience like this is very difficult, and opening up to tell about it is even more so. They do it, they say, in case this story reaches a boy or girl who is suffering the same, it encourages them to be brave. “The monster was in the family, we protected it from the street and we had it inside,” says the mother. After the ordeal of experiencing abuse from her grandfather, she now has to put up with living in the same neighborhood as him. With the fear of going out into the street and being able to cross paths with him. “This is not fair and to die it seems that he is not going to die because he is getting better and better,” she says, because the man is seen around town almost every day doing his errands.
