ABC News correspondent Ryan Smith interviews Savannah, the teenage girl who was allegedly raped at an underage drinking party in Spanish Fort, Alabama on October 24, 2015. She was 16 at the time. Her classmate at Spanish Fort High School, 18-year-old football player senior Cameron “Cam” Harrison, was charged with first degree rape. Witnesses from the party have told different stories. Some say Savannah was “very intoxicated” while others say she was “coherent.” The legal case came down to whether Savannah gave consent or not.
In April 2017, Harrison took a plea deal and was granted youthful offender status. Once a person has been granted youthful offender status, even if they are found guilty of the charged offense, it will not show up on their record as a conviction.
According to Harrison’s attorney, John Beck, he and the District Attorney’s office “resolved the case to the satisfaction of all parties involved.” The youthful offender status also means “the details of the agreement are confidential.” ABC News reports: “The case was settled in secret, with all the terms and conditions sealed.” Savannah’s interview with 20/20 occurred prior to the agreement. The terms of his plea agreement prohibit Harrison from commenting further. 20/20 airs Fridays at 10pm on ABC.
