Tonight's special guest is Judge Mary Elizabeth Bullock from San Diego, abuse survivor and author of the new book, "Judging Me." Judge Bullock knows what it is to crouch in the darkness, locked in a closet, listening for the footsteps of the man who is coming to torment her. She spent much of her childhood in pain, fear and darkness, a prisoner of someone who should have been her protector. But she also knows the freedom she has won and the happiness of achieving success as an attorney and then as a federal civil rights judge. Best of all, she knows the satisfaction of helping others, with her work in advocacy as well as through this memoir of familial childhood sexual abuse for ten plus years. Judge Bullock knows that childhood sexual abuse victimizes one in six young boys and one in every four little girls. Some victims will not even remember the crimes perpetrated against them, crimes that may affect their capacity to love freely and live a responsible life. Her book was written for the victims, and also for the people who love them and want desperately to understand. Her memoir takes the readers from a childhood of horrific sexual abuse, torture and the sale of a small child to predators for their own sexual perversions to a life that has been a triumph over the past. In "Judging Me," a survivor offers hope and understanding to anyone willing to receive it. Mary Elizabeth Bullock has been a sought-after trial litigator, a respected professor of business law, and a federal civil rights judge. Dedicated to helping others, she has made herself into a formidable woman, with a vital story to tell.
