If you or someone you love is a victim of sexual abuse, the very first thing you should do is to call the police. This will enable them to quickly gather evidence and put the information together to help substantiate your claim. It may also help them to apprehend the criminal who did this to you and get you some measure of justice.
Also, you should contact an attorney. That should be your second call, because that attorney will help you get a measure of justice. That attorney will be able to direct you to doctors and counselors to help you deal with the situation because the consequence of this horrible injury will last for a lifetime.
