Okay, thank you.
In my years as a principal of a junior high school, I ran across five serious occasions that I can remember when 14- and 15-year-olds had moved out of their homes and taken up residence with an adult. In every case I dealt with, it was a female taking up residence with an adult male.
In my experience with that situation, I saw a very serious thing taking place, and that is how it victimized the family, the mother and the family of the child. I had no authority to do anything about it. The mom and dad who wanted to remove their child from that situation had no authority. The police could not act on their behalf.
You can only imagine what a parent could be living with at night, night after night, wondering what's happening with their 14-year-old daughter who's taken up residence with a 25-year-old male who has a constant flow of friends and parties and what not, how devastating that could be on them.
I'd like to ask Mr. Sullivan, have you any evidence of the number of people who are victimized, who aren't the teenagers, but mostly parents, in close relation to these people?
