Sadly, it has come out that there were previous accusations against this man, but police couldn't prosecute because the child's family didn't want to get involved with pressing charges and involvement in a trial. Its something of a moral dilemma. I can't blame the family for wanting to not be involved, but how many children could have been spared if that had pursued it?

One that's done all the things you set out to do.
Stand, there's a cross for you to bear,
Things to go through if you're going anywhere."Sly & the Family Stone
