Comments: I was sexually abused and raped and I never told. My friends daughter was molested by her step-brother for 5 yrs. We took her to the State Police an made a report...3 months later Children and Youth found him (the Perp.) to be guilty, but we are still waiting for the police to make an arrest. My friend and her daughter have been living various places because they will not remove "the perp." from the home. He has been in trouble with the law since he was 13 and on house arrest a least 3 times and on probation when the report was made. Is this fair
