Wrap: Missouri Kids First says they're worried about the release of recordings in which child abuse victims discuss their abuse. The Deputy Director of Missouri Kids First Emily van Schenkhof says forensic interviews of sexual abuse victims could reach public. 

 

Actuality:  CHILDA1.WAV
Run Time:  00:11
Description: We have considerable fears that if we are not protecting these forensic interviews in a more thorough and robust manner that at some put we could see a forensic interview on Youtube.

Forensic interviews are the first step in child protective services investigations.
