  1. It is often the case with sexual abuse, that the perpetrators never face justice. Many many people have experienced abuse during their childhood, and do not have the vocabulary to describe what is happening to them at the time it is taking place. In many cases, children only become aware during sex education inadolescense that what was happening to them was wrong, and by then it is often too late to obtain "forensic evidence" as the abuse was historic. Our legal system makes it extremely difficult to convict the perpetrators, if there is no forensic evidence (bodily fluids present). This does not mean that the abuse did not take place, nor that the police have not believed the allegations, it is rare that anyone makes up such a story, its just a sad reality that we as a society fail to recognise that just because a person has not admitted that they have abused someone (criminals rarely commit crimes in broad daylight with witnesses!), or by the time the person disclosed the abuse evidence is no longer available - this does not mean that it didnt happen. In the case of Jimmy saville, it is apparent that he was indeed a predatory paedophile, who used his power and status to control, manipulate and abuse so many people. It is with attitudes of doubt that we become part of the problem for survivors of sexual abuse, i urge everyone to be part of the solution - If you suspect a child or young person has or is experiencing abuse, or you are an adult survivor, tell someone, get support, remember support is empowerment.
