Sex crimes like molestation and sexual abuse can adopt many faces, and it can happen to the very young as well as the very old, to the rich and famous as well as the common folks. A victim often feels ashamed and embarrassed and therefore keeps it secret, sometimes for decades or even for lifetime. Sexual abuse can range from non-physical forms (sexual harassment) to actual intercourse. In any case, the victim is often left undergoing extreme emotional and psychological stress, and sometimes even with physical trauma.

What to Do If You Catch A Molester?
Sexual abuse is a serious crime. If you believe someone has molested your child or any other child, do not try to handle it yourself! When caught, a predator will always say that it was their “first time” and he will also promise never to do it again. But he will be lying and he is good at it. Call the police and report abuse! The best thing one could for one’s own child and for the other children (past or potential victims of the predator) is to report the crime to the authorities. If a molester has preyed on your child, he will do it to others too unless he’s stopped.
