The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Andrew Nicastro and other victims of alleged Child Molestation. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

According to court documents, a jury began on Monday, July 23rd, 2012 in a lawsuit filed on December 15th, 2010 by a Williamstown man, Andrew Nicastro, in Hampden County Superior Court (case no. HDCV2010-00037B) alleging he was molested as a child by his parish priest, former Rev. Alfred Graves. Nicastro claims he was sexually abused about twice a week for about three years when he was between 11 and 14 years old. Defendants are two former bishops, the Most Rev. Joseph F. Maguire and the Most Rev. Thomas L. Dupre, who Nicastro claims should be held accountable for his childhood abuse by the priest.

According to the National Alert Registry, statistics say that one out of every three to four girls has been sexually assaulted by the age of 18. One boy out of every six will be abused by the age of 18.
