In 2010, Delaware pediatrician Earl Bradley was convicted on 24 counts of child sexual abuse. Following many years of investigation and suspicion, Bradley was arrested after a 2-year old girl reported an incident to her parents. A subsequent police search recovered hours of videotape documenting over 10 years of abuse. Bradley received a life sentence for his crimes, and in response to this issue, the State of Delaware created an initiative to train five percent of its population in child sexual abuse prevention.
Supporting this statewide effort, The YMCA of Delaware is enrolling its entire staff in Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children prevention training program. The following clip from “Our America with Lisa Ling” details their endeavor.
