Awareness, enforcement help reduce child sex abuse

Increased public  awareness of how child predators operate, along with better law enforcement and  policies to protect children, may be helping to reduce child sex abuse despite  this year's headlines about cases connected to institutions like Penn State, the  Boy Scouts and the BBC. A recent report from the University  of New Hampshire's Crimes Against Children  Research Center found incidents of child sexual abuse have been declining in  the U.S. for 20 years, with some statistics showing decreases as steep as 60  percent. The findings may be surprising  given the high-profile cases in the news. But many of those incidents took place  years, sometimes decades, ago. Ironically, experts say, publicity surrounding  such scandals may help reduce the problem.

Ted  Alexander Jr. always was the last one dropped off after Boy Scout meetings. The driver, his Boy Scout leader, would take the 8-year-old to a parking lot  on Black Rock Turnpike and they would wrestle in the car. Sometimes, the man  would shove Alexander's head into Toth's crotch. The man was Stephen  Toth.
