Archbishop Nienstedt Charged with 10 Counts of Sexual Misconduct
As of November 26, 10 men have come forward accusing Nienstedt of sexual misconduct while they were either in the seminary or serving as priests. This matches statistics, which report that 75 percent of rape victims were sexually abused by people they know. In this case, victims held onto their “secret” until the allegations were out. Statistics show that only 30 percent of sexual assault cases are reported to authorities.
Since sexual abuse is, by nature, a hidden crime providing facts on sexual assault and other forms of sexual abuse is an effective way of raising awareness in the community. Awareness of the facts is a preventative measure that will assist you in making safer decisions. If you have been arrested for sexual assault or any other sex crime in Las Vegas, contact a law firm with experience.
