“Congress’s well-intentioned but misguided Mondale Act (the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, CAPTA), signed into law by Richard Nixon in 1974, provided impetus to prosecute alleged crimes against children.
“First, it provided immunity to reporters of abuse, thereby unleashing an unlimited supply of unsubstantiated charges.
“Second, it provided funds to permit so-called victims to receive state-financed therapy immediately, even prior to any adjudication.
“Thus, the victims in Edenton received extensive counseling, at government expense, for ‘abuse’ that never occurred. Four ‘sex therapists’ got all that business and received many thousands of dollars in reimbursement. They had no motivation to suppose those charges might be bogus.”
