We, SurvivorsOfNewBethany child sexual abuse and rape have filed reports with law enforcement (LE). All men and women under the age of 49, sexually abused in Bienville Parish, Arcadia, Louisiana, need to contact your local law enforcement and file a police report and name your offenders.
Please contact RAINN for a professional advocate to go with you. We have male and female SONB, who will go with you. No one needs to go alone.
Make certain local law enforcement know to send your report to the La. State Police over Bienville Parish.
All help in spreading this message is appreciated. I welcome any questions about reporting to law enforcement and LASP.
DO NOT report to anyone before law enforcement. No one else needs to know! I'm too old to worry about fear, shame, guilt, or disbelief.
We want Justice and we need every NB Victim of SXAB to talk to LE.
