Former Boise police officer may have more sex abuse victims

Stephen Young patrols the Boise River in 2005.

Detectives need the public’s help to find any children who had sexual contact with Stephen Young while he worked in Boise schools.

Ada County investigators say they have new evidence that former Boise police officer Stephen Young may have victimized children he knew in the decade he worked as a resource officer. Detectives have not been able to find any of those people – many of whom would be adults now.

Young already faces four felony counts of lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 16. Those charges name four specific victims, all children known to Young between the ages of one month and 21 months.

“Sex offenders do not just victimize one person one time,” Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney said. “When we learn of sexual abuse committed by a person and begin to investigate, we often uncover other victims – people we never would’ve been able to help had the abuse not been disclosed to us.”

“We know that Steve Young lived and worked around young people on a daily basis for many years. We’d like to hear from anyone in the community who has information about inappropriate behavior he may have shown, especially toward children,” Detective Craig Durrell said Tuesday. “It is important for us to talk with these other victims to get them any help they may need and to ensure that justice is served in this case.”

By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
