What’s Big Brothers Big Sisters’ reaction to the Sandusky verdict?
We applaud the work of the prosecutors, law enforcement and others who worked so hard to bring this case to justice. We are saddened and outraged that so many children were harmed before this case came to trial. Our hope is that this will send a clear message to all who might exploit their association with a school, community center or mentoring organization to harm a child. We believe that these kinds of crimes are under-reported and that media accounts of cases such as this bring forth more reports. We remain committed advocates for the children we serve and want past, present or would-be perpetrators to know we have zero tolerance for abuse and will work proactively with law enforcement to provide information to bring facts to light.Read more
