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?
