Experts KFOX14 spoke with say outing an accused sexual abuser on social media can be dangerous.

She warns against confronting an abuser on social media --- before seeking treatment and talking to authorities.
There might be people that really don't like these kinds of individuals and will go after her in one way or another. So, it really becomes dangerous. There is a lot of resentment; there is a lot of shame. There is a lot of guilt. And you need to place that accordingly. And work through it accordingly, said Madrid.
The real lesson here may be one of prevention Madrid says parents must talk to their children about sexual abuse to protect them.
You do not allow anybody to touch you no matter what they tell you. If they tell you your parents are not going to love you or all kinds of threats. This needs to be known to children, said Madrid.
