Sexual abuse is a crime of a very personal nature. When an individual becomes the victim of sexual abuse, he or she will suffer from physical injuries as well as significant emotional injuries. It is often the emotional injuries that can leave the longest lasting and most painful scars. The majority of sexual abuse-related physical injuries will be resolved in time, providing the proper treatment is received. Emotional injuries often have a life-long and profound effect on how the victim will be able to live the rest of his or her life.
