Cape Cod’s Camp Good News forced to close it’s doors due to sexual allegations

Posted on October 12th, 2011 No Comments

At least nine people have come forward claiming they were abused while attending Cape Cod’s Camp Good News as children. The sexual assault occurred during different summers the victims spent at the Christian camp.

New legislation may make it possible for these adult-aged victims to finally receive justice for what happened to them during their childhood. In the state of Massachusetts, victims have until the age of 25 to report sexual abuse and until the age of 30 to report childhood rape.

Many factors contribute to victims waiting  until they are grown adults to report their attackers including guilt and suppressed emotions.

Cape Cod’s Camp Good News closed it’s doors this summer once the sexual assault allegations were made public.

If you have been accused of a sexual crime, please contact the experienced Massachusetts sex crimes attorney James Powderly by calling 508-343-0676 today.
