In 1986, WBTV Anchor Maureen O'Boyle was raped by James Starling  when she worked as an Anchor in Macon, GA.

Starling was sentenced to 50 years in prison, but now is up for parole next month. O'Boyle said that she was shocked to learn through an Internet search that her rapist could be getting out of prison early. 

O'Boyle set up an online petition and is seeking 25,000 signatures to try and keep this creep behind bars.

"When you are raped, it never leaves you. My rape was the most terrifying day of my life...but the horror only escalated when I learned James Starling, inmate number 168978, might be paroled," O'Boyle writes on the petition. 

As of this morning, O'Boyle's petition was just 500 names away from the 25,000 goal.

O'Boyle also took to social media and posted this very personal video and her concerns of Staling's release.  

I'm asking for your help in keeping the man who raped me behind bars. Read about the crime and sign petition here:
