Child abuse on the rise in Sullivan County

Sullivan County, Tenn. — The people who investigate child abuse claims in Sullivan County say the number of cases rose dramatically last year. The number of physical and sexual child abuse cases referred to the Sullivan County District Attorney’s office in 2010 was 929, according to a report compiled by the DA’s office. In 2009, that number was 715. “There is a problem and it’s probably greater than the average citizen understands,” said Assistant DA Barry Staubus. Staubus works with Children’s Advocacy Center Forensic Interviewer Amy Whitt-Bachman when prosecuting child abuse cases.



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.

    We are now in 21st century, but we are suffering from different types of harassment. If a child is a victim of sexual harassment, his mental growth is totally damaged. So we should take care regarding this matter__________
