18-Year Olds Charge Fathers With Sex Abuse


CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011

18-YEAR OLDS CHARGE FATHERS WITH SEX ABUSE

     Once I sat in on a trial of a man accused by his newly eighteen year old daughter of child sexual abuse. It takes courage for a daughter to press charges such as these.

     Yesterday’s newspaper reported another case where an eighteen year old victim pressed charges against an elderly couple (ages 80 and 78) who sexually victimize her for at least seven years.

     A deal was agreed upon by the victim after the family asked for a resolution that would legally fit the circumstances and spare her from dredging up all the memories…

     Edward Lisovich pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor charge of corruption of miners.

     The punishment? Two years of probation!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

     Ignoring the legal aspect, do you think the punishment fit the circumstances (as reported)? Do you think that the daughters should have ignored the problem and moved on with their lives rather than upsetting the family dynamic by bringing the charges forth?
