The emotional state of Alves’ alleged victim was made clear by police officers who attended to her, with one officer stating that she was shaking and crying, and that she did not want money, but justice.

The director of the facility testified that the girl was upset and mentioned penetration. Another officer stated that the complainant said Alves had inserted his fingers into her vagina.
