Board unhappy with delays child victims face

THE CHILD CARE BOARD wants to see the end of victims of child abuse having to wait years for cases to be adjudicated in the criminal justice system.

Director RoseAnn Richards expressed this concern on Tuesday during a media briefing announcing the launch of the Child Care Board’s annual Month of Child Abuse and Prevention Awareness at the Warrens Office Complex, Warrens, St Michael.

“I would say that I am satisfied with the number of people that are being charged, but I am not satisfied with the length of time it takes for matters of child abuse to go through the court system,” she said. (JRN)
