Abuse of any type, whether it be sexual, physical or mental, upon a child is a repugnant crime. Child victims may suffer a lifetime of physical and emotional trauma as a result of the abuse. If you or someone you know suspects acts of abuse against a child you should contact local authorities immediately. Contacting local authorities will initiate an investigation and, hopefully, stop the abuse.
