The girl said that Mr. Jake touches her inappropriately and makes her feel bad about herself.
A girl, as young as nine, has alleged that she's a victim of sexual abuse and domestic violence by her mother, and her mother's boyfriend. Sophie Long, from Frisco, Texas, was recorded saying that she doesn't want to go home with her mother and grandmother (mom's mom) because her mom's boyfriend, Mr. Jake, touches her "vivi." A GoFundMe page set up on little Sophie's behalf claims her "father is fighting for her life while her abusers pull every resource to get their hands back on her." Meanwhile, Sophie has also alleged that her biological mother is complicit in the abuse and is "encouraging it."
The video has been shared on YouTube titled #StandWithSophie. From the video, it seems that Sophie was with her father before he took her to go back to her mom. That's when she started to throw tantrums, saying that she did not want to go to her mom's place. Initially, in the video, someone can be heard telling Sophie that she'd be safe with her mom since her grandmother wouldn't let her be harmed. However, Sophie says that her grandmother only listens to her mom and that she just doesn't want to go back. Somehow, she gets into the car, and when they reach Lacy Lakeview, she refuses to get out of the car.
I'd like to direct your attention to this 9 year old girl who is allegedly being sexually abused by her mother's boyfriend (while the mother watches).— Sydney Watson (@SydneyLWatson) August 31, 2020

Sophie's mother and grandmother try to yank her out of the car, despite her telling them repeatedly that she doesn't want to get out and that it's hurting her. The father can be heard telling them to try and talk to her calmly, instead of using force on her. "We have gone through 30 thousand dollars since June and the fight somehow isn't over," organizer Kourtney Chalmers wrote on the crowdfunding website. "We have been dealing with CPS, Law Enforcement, Lawyers, DFPS, Forensic interviews, and several doctors that are helping with Sophie's recent medical issues in her private areas and as a resolute of the assault by her mother and grandmother in this video."
How the fuck would a NINE year old know to say the kind of stuff she's saying if it wasn't happening. This is fucked up and that so called grandma needs calling out publicly as well. Maybe she got the lead because school is the only place she feels safe and happy.— Rob Smith (@Titter_user) August 31, 2020
According to Chalmers, little Sophie is "desperate to be saved from that environment and we are desperate to help her." "She states her life has been threatened by these people and she is afraid, but has a brave heart and wants to help her brothers get away from the abuse too," she added. From 14:40 through 16:30 minutes in the video, Sophie can be seen pleading with her grandmother to just believe her when she explains what's actually going on at home. The grandmother is heard asking "Who's touching you?" To which Sophie says "Mr. Jake...and Mommy watches... Mommy watches it happen." Her grandmother then asks, "Where does he touch you?" To which she says "my Vivi."
This grandma really asked this girl how she got the lead in the school play in regards to her telling that she was being molested? That lady should be fucking ashamed of herself. A story like this makes me so fucking pissed.— Baseball is almost back (@LastWordWilliam) August 31, 2020
Sophie then reveals that he touches her and hurts her, and that when she woke up one day, there was blood in her underwear. She then went on to say that she's just tired of it and that it makes her feel really bad about herself. What's even more shocking is that the grandmother says that Sophie couldn't have gotten the lead role in the school play or done gymnastics "if she felt that bad about herself." The grandmother, who hasn't been identified, doesn't even acknowledge what Sophie said and she continues to try and get the little girl out of the car, along with the mother.
Any one know where this “grandma” lives out of curiosity?— McDiezel (@McDiezel3) August 31, 2020

"We are down to the wire and in an all-out legal fight while trying to get law enforcement everything they need for their investigation," the page reads, before bemoaning that the court is "actually considering giving them back to her mother and the people who help her physically and mentally assault the children according to Sophie and the boys - including relatives of her fiancee who Sophie has described horrific sexual encounters with." The video was soon shared and reshared on social media, along with #StandWithSophie. A lot of people began questioning the police department for updates.
How is a grandmother listening to this and trying to smooth it over. What a wretched, weak woman. She should be calling the police.— Bud Fox (@grafox709) August 31, 2020
Thus, the Frisco Police Department released a statement addressing the case following a deluge of comments. However, it's vague and didn't shed light on the ongoing investigations. "The Frisco Police Department is aware of the information circulating on social media related to the welfare of a child. This is an active case currently under investigation by our Criminal Investigations Division," the department wrote in a statement. "We certainly appreciate the passion and concern expressed by everyone on social media and consider protecting the children in our community as one of our greatest responsibility. However, because it is an active case, we cannot provide any other comment."
In the full video she also showed signs of s*lf h*rm when she starts scratching herself. All the signs are there and yet the police still handed her to her abusers— Bunichi🐇 (@Dont_TouchThere) August 31, 2020
