LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- This is our final series on sexual assault. We focus on fighting the crime with education and knowing what to do to stay safe.

One family made a big move to get the information they needed. It started because of a horrific case too close to home.

Their story begins during the first week of school.

Ayoung girl was waiting for the bus.

Police say Richard Schlacta, a convict from California, kidnapped and sexually assaulted her.

She fought back and ran.

Schlacta was caught blocks away from her Woodbury Middle School.

With his case still moving through the courts, for this mother and daughter, the incident forced them to pause and think about how they could regain a sense of empowerment and pass it on.

They unleashed smart safety techniques on their home turf where their predator committed his assault.

Fighting sexual assault is from education and knowing what to do to stay safe.
