Former Kentucky player Michael Porter charged with sex abuse
Porter, who is married and still living in Lexington, turned 25 last week. The citation says he met the minor when he was "a group leader at a church function." Porter's bail was set at $22,000 and he was scheduled to be arraigned at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Thankfully this brave victim came forward and reported these crimes. It takes great courage for victims of child sexual abuse to come forward and report a perpetrator, especially when that perpetrator is a respected member of the community and befriended the child at church. But it's important that every single person who sees, suspects or suffers child sex crimes speaks up. That's the best way to protect kids, expose wrongdoing, and start healing.
