EIE President Donna Rice Hughes will be on Tru-TV's "In-Session" Live at 11:30am EST tomorrow, July 29,  talking about the murder case against 16-year old Daniel Kovarbasich


Opening statements began this week in the murder trial against 16-year-old Daniel Kovarbasich.  Earlier this year, police were shocked to find former city worker, 55-year-old Duane Hurley, sprawled on his stomach, with a bashed head and multiple stab wounds; police have suggested that Hurley bled to death before his killer stopped attacking him.
 
What could ever have caused a teen to commit such a violent act?  Kovarbasich's defense is suggesting that Hurley was trying to rape him.  When Kovarbasich was only 12, Hurley began grooming him and manipulating him into eventually having a sexual relationship with him.  When Kovarbasich was 15, Hurley began a gradual progression from fondling to oral sex until finally penetrating the boy.  Tragically, as is often the case, Hurley was embraced by Kovarbasich's family and considered by them to be a "grandfather figure" in the young boy's life.
 
Tomorrow, Enough Is Enough® President Donna Rice Hughes will talk with "In Session"  about child sexual abuse, Internet Safety 101SM prevention techniques, the "grooming" process and the tragic circumstances of this graphic case. 
 
Tune in at 11:30am EST tomorrow, July 29, 2010 to TruTV's "In Session", to watch live.
