Of all of the age groups in society, many would like to think that children don't get abused very often, but that is not even close to reality. The statistics below show, again, only what is reported to police. Many of these crimes don't get reported at all, because the children never tell an adult or when they do, the adult doesn't believe them. Read below and see how sexual assault is deeply embedded in society even from a very young age.
