Child Abuse - A Molester in Our Neighbourhood

by Little Girl Lost
(Location Undisclosed)

There was a woman that I was friends with about 1 year ago. She had an 8 year old son. Anyway, to make a long story short, she had a boyfriend who was a convicted Child Molester. He admitted it to me himself. My son was only 10 years old and I refused to deal with her anymore. I'm still in my healing process from my own abuse, so you can imagine how I felt. I finally told my SACC worker and she got on the phone right away and called Child Protection. She told them that "There was a Child that was in potential danger". This man was also going to the school to pick up my ex-friend's son. My son attended that school too. I was so afraid for the children that I had to tell someone. Now, a year later, I've seen his profile on Facebook. There are women and men who have children and even have pictures of them. The police told me that they couldn't do anything, only if he re-offends. Can anyone really believe that he's reformed? I don't know what to do.
