Description

A three-part News 12 investigation reports on children falling victim to sexual abuse. The first part reveals that many cases of sexual abuse occur at home by a person the child know and trusts. Many offenses go unreported because children do not talk about what happened, or are afraid to testify. Part two is based on a "surprisingly candid interview" with a convicted sex offender who admits he will never be cured. Part three is a hidden camera investigation showing how children, although taught not to go with strangers, can be easily lured to walk away from their playgrounds. An undercover police officer plays the role of the "stranger," while children's parents are watching the entire matter unfold before heir eyes.
