Church officials in Las Vegas should immediately reach out to their congregation and see if any kids in their flock were abused by Nathaniel Morales.
It is rare for a child abuser to only strike once or in one location, and we fear that there are more victims of Morales outside of Maryland. We urge church officials to immediately and aggressively seek out anyone who may have been hurt by this man.
Our hearts ache for the victims of Morales, but we are grateful that they will be able to have their day in court. Too often, because of the predator friendly statute of limitations, predators are able to escape justice for their crimes. We hope that this case will open the eyes of lawmakers and serve as an example of the positive things that can come from a criminal trial for child sex abusers.
