BROOKS - The victim remembers spending the night of her eighth birthday with her uncle, Gerald Owens.
The memory of that night is as terrifying as it was so many years ago.
Sleeping on the couch, Owens approached her, putting his hands were they were not supposed to go.
She never told police. A few relatives knew. They probably hoped Owens would grow out of that behavior.
However, when Owens was recently charged with two counts of sexual abuse of two minor males, the victim knew it was time to come forward.
