Sara Stokes Lands Docu Film
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, a new docu film about Sarah Stokes and her father, Jay Christopher Miller, is under way. The film is about rape and molestation and focuses on Stokes and the controversial child molestation trial that her 63-year-old father faced this year. A source tells us that,
Sara’s relationship with her father and what she’s been through, along with her dad’s trial is such a fascinating story that producers wanted to document it.
The source adds,
This isn’t just Sara Stokes story, millions of women have experienced this for years. 80% of women never tell 90% are Black Women so the cycle continues. She’s one of the few women BRAVE enough to tell, it’s just a shame that so many other little girls had to be sexually assaulted by her Father before they believed her!
Stokes, a singer who also starred on Centric’s reality show ‘From The Bottom Up‘, has openly discussed her father’s sexual abuse in the past. Last year, she told the Detroit Free Press,
When I was 12 years old, he ended up molesting me, too. That was the point when all trust went out the window for everybody, especially men. I just felt so hurt.
Reportedly, in April Stokes’ father pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a minor under age 13, and a single count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, second
offense. According to a report, he will serve 10-30 years on the first two counts, and 10-15 years on the second-degree count. The earliest possible date of his release will be when in 2036, when he is 82.
The docu is directed and produced by Nicci Gilbert and her producing partner, Luchia Ashe. We’re told that the principle photography for the project is complete and they will be in post production for a Fall release. No word on whether Sara will return for season 3 of From The Bottom Up.
