The Rape Crisis Center (RCC) of the Coastal Empire announced today that it has begun a search for a new executive director after the departure of former director Kesha Gibson-Carter.
Gibson-Carter served in the role for five years. She has accused local law enforcement and District Attorney Meg Heap of trying to bully her into silence when she complained about a large backlog of unprosecuted rape cases in Chatham County.
"She had a passion for the RCC and an unwavering commitment to assisting and supporting victims of sexual assault,” said Lynne Wolf, President of the Board of Directors of the RCC. “We wish her the best as she pursues new endeavors.”
The Criminal Justice Coordinating Council "will assist RCC in identifying resources for interim support during the RCC’s search for a new Executive Director," the group says.
