Sex Abuse Victims Often Remain Silent for Years

Last week, police charged an Antioch man with molesting a 9-year-old girl, although the incidents of abuse allegedly occurred nearly 10 years ago. Authorities began investigating the matter last June after the victim, who is now 18, came forward to police with information about the abuse.
