‘”It’s a serious concern and it goes on all around us in our community and most people are just blind to the signs of it,” says Detective Brian Ashburn with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department.
Ashburn is assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. He says the national statistics on child abuse are staggering.
“One in four girls are sexually abused and one in six boys. That’s a very high number. That’s just reported, known cases,” says Ashburn.”
