6 Sneaky Signs a Trusted Adult Could Be a Child Sexual Abuser
Michael Jackson is now deceased and consequently he will never be convicted in a court of law, but many of Jackson’s alleged behaviors were typical of those exhibited by child sexual offenders who use grooming behaviors. Grooming behaviors are the behaviors and techniques a sexual offender employs so that they can engage in abuse without detection. Grooming behaviors are directed toward the intended victim, the child’s parents or guardians and the community at large. They generally follow a series of stages that may include selecting a vulnerable victim, gaining access to the child, developing trust of the child and their guardians, and desensitizing the child to sexual touch so the abuse can take place without detection. However, many of these grooming behaviors also overlap with behaviors that caring, involved adults engage in and thus it is often hard for adults to recognize them before abuse takes place.

Having already logged seven miles earlier that morning, Keen was scheduled to meet up with a friend for a few more. But her friend was running late, so Keen set off to get a few more miles in to fill the time. Halfway through that session, the dog appeared.
