If someone tries to kill you but you survive, are they charged with attempted murder even if you say, "It's okay I forgive them"? I do believe that is how the justice system is set up.
So years have passed, it's unfortunate, but does not negate the crime. I wonder if any more victims will come forward now that this has come to light, how many "one time only" pedophiles are there?
Fix'd cuz bad grammar is bad.
