Before you trash me, please understand that I'm being asked not to go into direct detail about the situation. There are facts in this situation that you are not aware of.
I never engaged in gossip with anyone over this matter. The only communication I engaged in was with people who had the power to keep the matter private.
Sam involved himself when he started to publish material on behalf of one of the people involved. The only reason I contacted Sam was to let him know that there was a serious matter being investigated.
Nobody has refuted the fact that the orginal complaint came directly from the child involved. It is also not been refuted that the matter was promptly reported and was under investigation at the time Sam exposed it to the public.
