There is no doubt that child sexual assault/abuse is top of mind these days, with more and more reports in the news about alleged abuse on our kids. With each story, we sit in disbelief that another human could take advantage of such young and trusting children and we are profoundly thankful that it wasn’t our child that was victimized. But for one family, they wouldn’t be so lucky.

This pedophile, a trusted friend and neighbor, had committed more than 280 sexual assaults on women and children. Law enforcement could do little to stop him.
