Rep. Joyce Maker Pushing To Protect Children From Sexual Abuse


(WQDY-FM NEWS) CALAIS MAINE – Thanks to persistence by State Representative Joyce Maker of Calais, lawmakers will consider a measure that would help protect children in K-5 from sexual abuse so they understand what constitutes inappropriate contact with adults.

A month ago, it was turned down by a legislative council but on Thursday, Rep. Maker was back to appeal and it passed 9-1.

Paraphrasing what she said in Augusta Thursday in a later telephone interview with WQDY NEWS, “According to the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Abuse, one of every seven victims of sexual assault is under the age of six.”
