San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than the underage student, the alleged victim of Alain Eloym Salas. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On Feb. 13th, 2012 Alain Eloym Salas was arrested for sexual contact with a 15-year-old student within LAUSD. Salas, high school teaching assistant and girls' softball coach, was arraigned on Feb. 15th on charges, case no. TA 122002, of four felony counts for an inappropriate relationship with an underage student. According to the felony complaint, the alleged crimes occurred between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30, 2011 and involve a 15-year-old girl. This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (S.A.F.E.) Team.
According to the U.S. Justice Department, roughly 33% of girls and 14% of boys are molested before the age of 18.The Child Molestation Research and Prevention Institute estimates that at least two out of every ten girls and one out of every ten boys are sexually abused by the end of their 13th year.
In most cases child molestation goes unreported because children might be frightened or embarrassed. According to FBI reports, the National Institute for Mental Health found that only 1% to 10% of victims ever tell that they were abused.
