Alisha Owen testified that she was repeatedly raped as part of the Franklin child prostitution ring, from the age of 14.[1]

Testimony

Alisha Owen was interviewed by Gary Caradori in 1989. "Initially hesitant to discuss her past... she eventually confessed to her involvement in Franklin and specified perpetrators whose names had repeatedly surfaced throughout Caradori’s investigation. At the conclusion of the interview, Caradori asked Alisha if she would be willing to make a formal statement the following week. Alisha said she needed to sound out her parents, because she felt that her cooperation would potentially endanger her family members."[1]

Criminal charges

Owen was sentenced to 9-15 years for 8 counts of perjury, but served only 4½ years.

On November 7, 1989 at York Reformatory, Owen was incarcerated on a 3 to 4 year sentence for writing “bad checks”, when she was interviewed by Gary Caradori.[1]
