Except my daughter did not have rights. Her rapist did not have a trial at all. As her mother I did not recieve the results of the perk kit...infact after the results were found I was not even informed that the results were found. But on my child's medical record it says sexual assault and my 4 year old has been telling me what happened for the past year because she witnessed it, but Greene would not order a forensic interview.

This whole experience has traumatized my daughters and me as well and Greene county has made me feel like I can never trust any man again because men can do what ever they want and face no consequences. It has also made me very wary of law enforcement and DSS, people who are supposed to be there to help and keep people safe. I feel like the case was not taken seriously and I have been punished for the past year for speaking out and asking for help. I pray that he doesn't gain the trust of another woman, be allowed to watch her children because he makes himself look like such an amazing dad, and then take advantage of the mother and children's trust again to hurt another child.

How do you think my 4 year old feels? I was told not to let her dad have any contact with her for almost a whole year because they were supposedly investigating and he could have been a threat to her...but then there was custody court and Greene said "OK he gets virtual visitation. " So now sometimes she asks to talk to him so I let her....but then sometimes she changes her mind and says "No I don't want to talk to my dad because he hurt my sister." Meanwhile I owe my lawyer $1600 right now and already paid thousands for both a custody lawyer to make sure my child's rapist did not get custody, and also a lawyer to appeal a founded disposition of inadequate supervision. I am the one who brought my daughter to the hospital when I found blood in her diaper. I am the one who did not allow any contact as I was told....but I am the one who faced all the consequences for what the father of one of my children did to my other child...a child who he helped raise for 10 years of her life.

#justiceforjasmine nonverbal kids deserve justice too.

Greene has a wonderful VWP!

Well done to the best sheriff's operation in Virginia!

Absolutely

I recommend that if your child ever has a forensic exam, when the hospital asks if you are OK with the perk kit going to Greene county because that is where you reside, you say no. I regret not saying no and asking for another county to get possession of the perk kit.

Coming from Greene County… I have a lot of doubts for Greene sheriffs department.. lmao practice what you preach

We are victim's of personal property robbery!

Hollowpoints are an instant cure for pedophilia 👍

Thank you for working hard for accountability. With each arrest it's a message that hurting children will not be tolerated in this county. We appreciate all your effort.

Hope he gets everything he deserves an he will as soon as word gets out where he is held

I have heard that the big house repays people with the same thing let's pray

The man is broken. He can't be fixed.

Hope he gets some jail house justice

This was our nightmare

Sad thing is he will get out on bond, just like that piece of shit walter jenkins. Makes me sick to my stomach. Nice place in HELL FOR these worthless pieces of shit!!!!

Chris Chan update please.

Throw away the Key never let him out

Robert G. Jones Aka Bo Will be arraigned on May 31, 2022 Criminal Court 9 am

Too bad yall don't care about kids who are disabled. Ben Durrer is still walking the streets and he raped a child.

His defense attorney will argue the “victim” slipped and good old Mr. “Bo” Jones tried to catch her fall. He will have a dozen character witnesses testify the church-going “Bo” is a good God-fearing man who would never hurt a child…it’s all just an innocent misunderstanding.

Until justice for the victim(s) becomes the priority of our criminal justice system this evil will continue to be prevalent in our society. Thinking that predators like rapists and murderers can be rehabilitated is not living in the world as it really exists. Sexual abuse of children, the elderly, and murder should all carry the same ultimate penalty.

Lock em up! Great job Greene County's Sheriff's.

Neuter this asshole make him pay

Nice! Next maybe you'll put my daughters rapist in jail! I doubt it though because she is disabled and he is in the Greene county sheriff's department family.

Sick, sick,sick!

That's funny cuz yall won't even give me proof that my child's rapist isn't a rapist. You didn't even ask him to recall the whole day of Feb. 27th 2021, the day sexual assault was put on her medical record when I brought her to the ER and ingeries were found by UVA Hospital in a forensic exam. Not all victims have the same rights I guess.

I understand you can't convict someone with out enough evidence. So if there was not enough evidence then show the victims. Don't just call them and say "He won't be charged with anything. "

No justice has been served for my 12 year old daughter. Since she is disabled she doesn't count or something?

Justice for jasmine! Ben durrer is a child rapist what about jasmine rights? Greene County just brushed it under the rug.

I have like 10 Dr's here and in VA that can testify that it diffinitly says sexual assault on Jasmine's medical record and has evidence of it so just can someone explain that to me?
