Enough with the silence

April 10, 2012

No one wants to talk about it.

But the number of child sexual abuse cases reported in the Eastern Sierra has gone up this year, from one to three in Mono County and from six to nine in Inyo County.

That might not seem like much, but these are two very small counties and it’s an unusually sharp increase.

No one knows why officially, but there’s good speculation.

“Let’s face it, this has really been in the news lately,” said Lisa Reel, executive director for Wild Iris. “And the ones reporting in our area are young, under 16.”
