Reluctant Advocate Stands Up To Child Sexual Abuse

Reluctant Advocate Stands Up To Child Sexual Abuse
PIERRE, SD -

Former TV reporter Jolene Loetscher used to tell other people's stories. Now as an advocate for childhood sexual abuse she's telling her story.

Loetscher was assaulted as a teenager. To help others, she has started a camp for abused kids and lobbied in support of legislation to remove the statute of limitations in some cases of child rape.

She's currently helping in an effort to create a panel that would study the issue and recommend policy changes to state lawmakers.

It would be called Jolene's Law Task Force.

The South Dakota Senate approved the creation of the task force last week and sent it to the House for review.

Loetscher says she hates reliving the experience but needs to help women, children and men who can't talk about it.
