Column: England’s shame failing victims of pedophile coaches



English soccer has reluctantly been forced to confront its dark secrets.


With each police update, the scale of abuse of aspiring players by their coaches becomes a larger stain on the national sport. Detectives in England investigating non-recent abuse in the game said there there are 839 possible victims and 294 suspects.


One former coach will be sentenced next week for exploiting his position of power to rape and assault youngsters dreaming of a professional career.

Kristin suffered from more than a year of torment at the hands of an ex-boyfriend.

“When you specifically tell someone – Do not interact with me – when you block on Facebook or social media or block their phone number and they start going around it and creating new Facebook pages or new Snapchats and emails and phone numbers, that’s when it gets to the point where you are at their mercy,” she said. “They keep interacting with you and all you want is for them to stop.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 7.5 million people are cyberstalked every year.

John Worboys’ victims face black cab rapist in court as judicial …

Victims have come face to face with John Worboys at a High Court hearing 15 years after he had drugged and raped them in the back of his taxi, as they were given the go-ahead for a legal challenge against the decision to release him from prison.

Worboys, 60, was brought to the Royal Courts of Justice for a hearing into whether or not the Parole Board’s decision to release him should be overturned. Two judges ruled that a temporary bar on releasing Worboys should be extended.

The case was brought by two victims who say the black cab rapist, responsible for attacks on more than 100 women, remains a danger to the public.

The hearing was delayed for Worboys’ arrival from Wakefield prison, his home since his conviction in 2009.

Worboys shuffled into court flanked by four security guards. He wore jeans and a grey open necked shirt with light green sleeves.
