One clear lesson has already emerged from the roiling Bill Cosby scandal: more child sex abuse victims should take – or at least explore - legal action against their predators, even if the crimes happened decades ago.

We applaud the brave woman who is suing Bill Cosby for allegedly abusing her decades ago as a child. That takes real courage. We hope other women and girls who were assaulted by this shrewd predator will find ways to seek justice against him.

A recently defrocked abusive Dominica predator priest faces credible allegations from at least two adults who say he molested them as children. Bishop Gabriel Malzaire should apologize for and explain why he’s been keeping this fact secret for months, and disclose how many individuals have reported being sexually assaulted by Reginald LaFleur. His victims are feeling extremely dismissed and very disappointed with the bishop's response to his removal from the priesthood. They are feeling re-abused again by the church officials.
