Sad you think like that, as a rape victim I can tell you that is not something anyone wants to say happened to them let alone a young man his age. Do you know what people say?? He does and he finally told so there would be no more to follow him. This same officer was dis-missed from another force for allegations( of which were deemed unfounded). So to say because the boy held out telling somehow makes it a set-up, is without any real knowledge of a rape victim. There are many upon many people out there that have been raped and/or molested still never told. Thinking if they just dont tell it will go away. The sad truth is it will keep happening, maybe not to them but to others. As in this case. Personally 3 months ago I complained at how many children here are making the complaints and because thier parents happen to be on drugs or are drinkers, somehow those children here are not reliable children to tell what happened to them?? I moved to this area not so long ago. Sad that I moved here for the beauty of the land. To keep meeting grand-children of my friends that say the same things all the time and it is not a big thing here that this happens to so many children? They say they are re-vamping the childrens service, lets hope that is so. For the sake of the children.

sad that so many automatically judge the victim. he probably waited so long because it was probably embarassing to him. my thoughts and prayers are with him.
