Many of us waited 20-30+ years to begin reporting Child Sexual Abuse perpetrated on children for over 30 years in Arcadia Louisiana.

Arcadians question why abuse was found over the years and no one ever charged with a crime. Nearby and in SC , New Bethany's houses of horrors were closed or run out of town ... everywhere except in Bienville Parish .
This was front page news last Sunday.

I know it's hard to watch and for us, the work has just begun.

If the BPSO continues to tray us poorly, we need ADA Tammy Jump removed or recused!

No one feels comfortable or safe with her. She earned our lack of confidence.

Did you see the videos?

Kathleen Flynn and Rebecca Catalleno produced incredible journalism and photo hour ism.

The videos were easier for me than the articles. I was there '76-'77 and did not realize the state never closed New Bethany until the board closed NB in 2001!

I was sick to learn I was not the only girl sexually abused and taped by Mack Ford.

I am so sorry. It's just awful what happened to you and as awful that no one helped you.

Troop G of the Louisiana State Police are investigating.

BPSO's sheriff Ballance was a state police and it is not possible to treat a dying victim worse ! Initially, and for about an hour, Ballance refused to take Jenn's report!
What law enforcement refuse to take a report of tape in their Parish?

Actually, the worst was being accused of fault after waiting 36 years to file the report. I was treated like the criminal by deputy Darrell Mills. ADA Tammy Jump was present and defended the 4.5 hours of interrogation. They recorded the hell they put me through . That was hurtful, unnecessary, and violates Rape Shield laws.
The plan is for Tammy to represent us as the states complainants. This is horrifying to us.

If you can write to the editor at the Times Picayune editor @nola.com you would help the Times to continue updates.
We have no faith or trust with BPSO because of past inaction and present crudeness toward rape victims.

We truly need your help!
