According to the California Department of Justice, sexual assault and abuse crimes were the third most reported violent felonies in 2015. After a sexual abuse incidence, even the strongest of us would find it difficult to get their life back on track. In such instances the emotional pain supersedes the physical pain making life even more difficult for the affected individual.
