What Constitutes Sexual Abuse?
Sexual abuse is considered to be any unwanted sexual contact such as:
- Touching of sexual organs
- Exposure of sexual organs
- Taking or requesting inappropriate pictures
- Showing pornography to a child
- Any form of sexual penetration
Institutional Cover Up & Failure To Report
People employed by schools, school districts, hospitals and other people entrusted with the care of minors are required to report any abuse of a child. Unfortunately, some people neglect to report instances of abuse because they are afraid of how it might affect their business, colleague or personal career. Failing to do a necessary part of their job means that they can also be held accountable for the abuse of the child.
