So, a parents embarrassment is more important than arming a child with the weapons to protect themselves? Amazing...
None of this means anything however if the local court systems are only giving slaps to the hands of the offenders, as is done here. Virginia has the reputation of a very sex offender "friendly" state because of this very thing.

Matt T. and the NBC29 team are the best in Charlottesville but this piece is really just feel-good puff that unfortunately serves to reinforce the false view that Foothills Child Advocacy Center (FCAC) exists solely to help abused children. FCAC likes to present itself a non-governmental, independent child welfare group who are experts in forensic child interview techniques. Unfortunately for our legal system they are none of these things. The truth is that the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) model followed by FCAC was created by a prosecutor for the sole purpose of improving his conviction rates in child abuse cases. The scheme he came up with is designed to remove accountability from the state, to preclude any actual independent investigation and to provide pseudo-scientific forensic interview techniques purpose designed to find that child abuse occurred, regardless of whether it actually did or not in order to bolster a prosecutors case and send the accused to jail, guilty or not. No search for the truth is done at the FCAC and while it is true that guilty people are probably more easily prosecuted due to their efforts it is equally true that their system has contributed to many hugely expensive and malicious prosecutions of completely innocent and falsely accused people. Understandably, lazy and incompetent prosecutors love this slickly marketed quazi-government organization and are more than happy to hide behind their falsely claimed independence and expertise instead of actually working to prove crimes have been committed by those they prosecute.
Would not the public be better served if reporters looked beyond the press releases and found out why public money is quietly diverted to this supposed independent non-profit to pay big salaries and employee perks. Why are WE paying for and supporting an organization that is designed to be unaccountable, has proven itself to be systemically biased and incompetent and yet continues to hold a dangerously influential position within our justice system.
We the people of Virginia and Albemarle County cannot afford this kind of waste and we deserve better than this. We deserve truly independent and competent investigations of these serious crimes and we deserve and should tolerate no less than honest, accountable and ethical commonwealths attorneys so that the truly guilty are rightfully punished and just as importantly that the truly innocent are not made victims. Maybe someday Albemarle.

Why do they get away with being so sex offender friendly? I think it is true too. Had a problem long ago with just that.Why do they get away with that?
