Melissa Gilbert, currently on this season’s “Dancing with the Stars,” played Shari Karney in the television movie, “Shattered Trust: The Shari Karney Story,” says, “Shari shows readers, step-by-step, how to escape from the grip of a sexual predator and how to seek justice and recovery from this devastating crime of sexual abuse. The book also provides valuable information for relatives or friends who know sexual abuse survivors and want to help.”
“What I loved about Prey No Longer, is that it is so useful and well-written, it has a state-by-state easy to understand guide for survivors of sexual abuse giving victims and those who care about victims, the time period that a survivor has to file a lawsuit against their abuser, an attorney listing, and resource guide,” says Seth Weiner, ESQ. Loyola Law School, Assistant Professor, Restorative Justice.
“In today’s world sexual abuse is one of the great hidden crimes of our times. Innocent victims live in guilt and fear with no idea of how to cope or seek justice. It affects one-in-three girls and one-in-five boys,” says transpersonal hypnotherapist and trauma specialist, Leonard Ludovico.
However there is hope, and that’s why Shari Karney, a sexual abuse survivor herself and noted California lawyer helped change the laws to protect the innocent victims and punish the guilty who have committed sexual crimes in California.

She writes from experience and knowledge. And for the sexual abuse survivor knowledge is power. There is a solution and this book provides real world answers to those who need them most, the innocent survivors of rape, incest, and other sexual crimes.
