McGinnis has spoken out about her ordeal since returning to the United States. She told People magazine, “I want the world to know. I want him to be stopped and I want justice to be served.”
She told the PEOPLE she was raped, beaten with baseball bats, stabbed, choked unconscious and shot during her time with Piette. “I cried every night,” she said.
In the court affidavit Piette who is scheduled to appear before the Wagoner County District Court, is accused of first raping McGinnis when she was 11 or 12 on a bunk bed in a back room of her home in Wagoner.
McGinnis told investigators Piette “married” her in a van in Wagoner when she was around 11 and even gave her a ring, according to court affidavits. A son of Piette told the FBI in January that he performed the “ceremony” in the van when he was 15.
Piette “took” McGinnis in January 1997 from a school in Poteau after her mother left him because of assaults, investigators reported. McGinnis had been living with her mother at a women’s shelter in Poteau.
“After being introduced to … Piette’s other children as their new mother, they began traveling to numerous locations throughout the United States and abroad including … Texas, Montana, Idaho, New Mexico, Arizona and Mexico,” an FBI special agent reported in one court affidavit.
With the rapist changing their names repeatedly “in an attempt to stay hidden”.
They first lived in Tulsa immediately after the abduction, then Piette took his captive to Oklahoma City. He would come back occasionally to Oklahoma and force McGinnis “to mail letters just so people would believe” she was still in the state, the FBI agent reported.
“McGinnis stated that she was sexually assaulted multiple times a day almost every day while she was with Piette,” court affidavits state.

According to News OK, Rosalynn lived under Piette’s thumb in a remote village in Mexico until she fell ill and needed surgery on her gallbladder.
Her captor forced her to continue her strenuous regime of chores while recovering — convincing her that she needed to escape.
“She grabbed what few funds she had earned and, that June, paid for a taxi to take her and her children to Oaxaca City, Mexico, where she made a call that would change her life”, People reported.
Last June Rosalynn got in contact with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children who told her to make her way to the US Embassy.
