A very basic problem with JW handling of abuse is that the org as a whole views Child Sexual Assault as a sin, not a crime.
I wonder on an *individual* level, how the R&F vs elders vs higher-level JWs view it personally...?????
If something is a simple 'sin', then it makes sense to not involve the police. But any physical assault IS a crime. And sexual assault on a child, is a major and serious crime. In fact, "Sexual Assault of a Child is, in most cases, a Second Degree Felony. Aggravated Sexual Assault (child under age 14) is, in most cases, a First Degree Felony." [http://faqs.egmlaw.com/sexcrimes.html]
There is no justifiable excuse ANYWHERE, ANYHOW to not report this type of criminal assault to professionally-trained authorities.
