Over 90% of child sex abuse cases
presented to prosecutors do not go to trial. Over 1/2 are not charged
or dropped after charging. - National Center for Prosecution
of Child Abuse, Volume 9 Numbers 5/6,1996
Less than 5% of reports are fictitious...adults are more likely than children
to make a false report...the rates are highest in custody or visitation disputes. -Thoennes & Tjaden, 1990.
