Lambert is entitled to an attorney and will be presumed innocent until proven guilty. People who commit sexual abuse against a child are depraved in every sense of the word. Many incidents of child abuse go unreported because of the abuse occurs in isolated environments. However, in this incident a friend reported the abuse and now the perpetrator is being prosecuted criminally. If you know of or suspect someone is a victim of sexual abuse please contact local authorities or a child abuse hotline immediately. Doing so will prompt a criminal investigation and stop the abuse.
