A woman alleges she was raped twice 13 years ago by a deacon of her church, Trinity Baptist in Concord, New Hampshire. Tina Anderson says the rapes resulted in her becoming pregnant when she was only 15. The former deacon, Ernest Willis, has now been arrested on sexual assault charges. Clergy abuse and church sex abuse cases are serious offenses, and must be brought to light so the sexual abuse victim can seek justice. It’s a scary thought when an inocent child is sexually abused by a member of the church, but child sex abuse occurs in schools and other organizations as well.

A 19-year-old New Jersey man who works at a New Hampshire summer camp is facing charges he tried to tie up and sexually assault an 8-year-old camper. Stephen Tecce of Pittsgrove, N.J., has been indicted on three felonies and one misdemeanor. Officials at Camp Spofford in Spofford say Tecce is a maintenance worker.Court documents say Tecce approached the girl last month and then led her to an empty nursery at the camp where he attempted to tie her up and sexually assault her. The girl escaped and told her parents.
