To The Sisters

I have always believed 3 of the additional 5 victims, who Patrick refers to in his psych sexual evaluation are his own sisters. If you've read my blog you know that in the evaluation Patrick gives the sex/age/frequency/ and details of exactly what he did to each victim. You just need to do the math it's not hard to figure out. These three were victimized repeatedly over several years. Two of the three victims are adults now. The third sister is soon to be 18yrs old.

 They all have till around age 26 to tell the authorities exactly what Patrick did to them.

Anyone with access to the 3 oldest girls in Italy, please let them know:
That just a phone call away is a Kitsap Sheriff who is interested in what they have to say and will believe them! Ask for Detective Keeler 360-337-7101.  Telling won't change what happened to Patrick's sisters but it could save an innocent child from enduring the same heinous crimes at the hands of Patrick David Rojas.

If not for yourself then do it for others! Call! Tell your story. There are several families that I personally know who would support you and give you a safe home if you feel you wouldn't have anywhere to go if you reached out to the sheriff's department. We haven't forgotten about you and what you have been through.

More about Frances and Family

 I try not to post information unless I have heard the same information from more than one source. With that said, since the lawsuit was dropped by Patrick I have been contacted several times by individuals wanting to pass on information about different Rojas family members, which I haven't posted. Lots of questions now that Eddie is back in the US.

Kathy and some of the children have citizenship. I believe this was possible through a grandparent. I have heard from a couple of people living in the same area, that the family has been living off believers in the community. They have missionary status. Eddie has been unable to get a job because he does not have citizenship. I heard that the family has raised many red flags in their community which lead to internet searches and finally to my blog.

Although the community has been confused and uneasy about the Rojas family, "They just can't turn the family out into the cold with all the little kids they have." I heard this from a couple of individuals. I think Eddie left behind Kathy and eight of their children in Sardinia, Italy. I can only speculate as to why Eddie didn't bring his family back with him. Most if not all of their immediate and extended family live in the states. 

Patrick is still living in the Gig Harbor area. And I hear, Patrick Rojas, is engaged to be married February 2014.

Frances Edward Rojas Is In the US

Apparently a community of believers came across my blog and it changed everything... For the Rojas's that were still in hiding in Italy. Keeping Eddie's outlaw status a secret become increasingly difficult. Word quickly traveled through the various households and churches where Eddie would move the family.  Support became very sparse. I believe that with virtually no resources left Eddie returned to the states to face the charges against him. He's innocent you know. I assume there was some agreement that his wife and children would be cared for. Kathy and some of the children actually have citizenship.

I found out via an e-mail on Thanksgiving Day that Eddie is in the US in custody. I verified the information. Eddie is in the Kitsap county jail.


Now what?

This Part Is Done

Patrick withdrew his appeal. It is over. Done.

The blog will stay as is! 

This part of my story is done. I have been able to outline what our family went through at the hands of a pedophile and corrupt church leaders. I have been able to show how keeping secret sexual abuse allows the abuser to continue sexually abusing other innocent people. I have tried to show that it is not appropriate to handle such a serious issue with prayer alone and you should reach beyond the church leaders for help and guidance. I believe I was able to warn families in the Gig Harbor/Tacoma area about a sexual predator in their midst, Patrick D. Rojas. 

Eddie Rojas is still on the run with a felony warrant. There are still victims of Patrick that have NOT seen any justice. There are many individuals that were part of our our story that are still healing from all the betrayal and devastation. I will only post if there is pertinent information such as additional crimes committed by Patrick, if Eddie is arrested, or other relevant local stories that catch my eye. By no means am I done in my pursuit to bring awareness to the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse. Most likely the venue will change. Time will tell. 

Thank you for all the prayers and encouragement over the years! And please pass on the link to my blog if you believe Our Story can help someone or if you know someone that is likely to run in the same circle as the Rojas family. I will keep tabs on the blog and can be reached at daniellelynnschneider@gmail.com

Window Into The Heart

I am often asked how "my child" is doing? How does "my child" feel about the blog and the legal battle? 

"My child" dedicated this song to me today...

I believe "my child" gets the importance of what is being accomplished with this blog. I love "my child" deeply and fiercely. I would not have taken this on, if I thought I was perpetuating the damage that was already done. 

It's little windows into "my child's" heart like this that assures me that we are okay.

The past two weeks have been emotional for me. Someone reached out to me from "the other side." A staunch supporter of Patrick and the belief that he is healed and repentant. I am still unsure as to why this individual felt compelled to contact me ...although lots was said, not one word of regret for her support of Patrick. I understand that the individual felt "lead" by the Lord to contact me but I think they missed the point of His prodding.

This individual happens to be at the end of her life and I fully expected some of the Rojas family members that have been in hiding to poke their heads up to say goodbye but was a little surprised to get a phone call informing me that Sarah Rojas was seen downtown Gig Harbor, yesterday, sitting on a bench sipping on a drink with another girl from our former church. So brazen. The warrant is only for Eddie Rojas so any other Rojas can come and go as they please. It's just hard for me to comprehend the lack of shame that these people feel. They really own their crazy reality and belief system.

I was also told that as of a couple of months ago Patrick Rojas was featured on the drums at Foothills Household of Faith. There was a family visiting this particular church that is aware of my blog and the dangers Patrick poses to children. Apparently the men in the church (at least the men in leadership) are aware of Patrick's sexual deviant history and level 2 status but the WOMEN DO NOT KNOW! Why? How does this help anyone? How does this protect anyone? Pretending that Patrick is not a potential threat to children and placing him on the worship team....really? God does not call us to be stupid or manipulated!

I chose to read the charging documents for the case against Christopher Dupea. I haven't been able to get the information out of my mind.

I am not naive, I understand there is a due process and I do believe in innocent until proven guilty. With that said, I do not believe a person is innocent simply because they say they are or because they "seem like such a good person." Remember, I have lived this, from the other side. Also, from my experience, I believe shutting out individuals that ask valid questions or encourage the seeking of truth (even if that truth is one you don't want) is a red flag. 

In this situation the community that wants to desperately support the Dupea family and uplift the parents are admirable. From my own experience I am just fearful that the church community will blindly support whatever they are told without fact checking. My desire is for all involved to download the available court documents and read them. Know what you are supporting. Attend the court dates, if at all possible. It's amazing what is revealed in the courtroom. 

This stuff is real! Child porn is real! Childhood sexual abuse is an epidemic! It does actually happen. In YOUR community! I do not want to know the details of what Chris is being charged with! " It is reprehensible and disgusting. It is NORMAL to NOT want to know but what is the alternative in a civil society?" a quote from a dear friend. We could ignore childhood sexual abuse and hope it doesn't touch our child and just goes away....I am here to tell you that ignoring it gives the predators power to continue. AND THAT IT CAN TOUCH YOUR FAMILY! Is that really what you want? Would that be worth not knowing the sortied details?

I am willing to expose myself to the ugly details involved in cases that effect my community in hopes of exposing it and shinning the light on it so that my children can continue to be children, untouched by a sexual predator. Isn't that our job as parents? Be informed! Be aware! Know what you are supporting!

If you are asked to write a letter of leniency on behalf, of Chris my only request is that prior to agreeing to do so that you read all court documents that are public record from the convenience of your own home. If you have questions the detective in charge of the case is usually willing to speak with concerned citizens.
