I was sexually abused over a period of a year or two back in 2004 and in 2012 I told my mum and then the police and told them every single detail and they arrested the man and recovered thousands of indecent images and videos. He was remanded in custody until trial but he hung himself in jail before it came to that. I was turned down for help from CICA because I had a petty criminal record starting a couple of years AFTER the offence but I was brought up in a house full of abuse so obviously I am going to be troubled I was being raped and to scared to talk to anyone I found it hard to work full time and needed help but things are looking up for me now but I will always be bitter about the way my matter was dealt with....Marc
