A Conversation with Veteran Sex Crimes Prosecutor Stacey Honowitz
We’re marking Sexual Assault Awareness Month on today’s show with a conversation with Stacey Honowitz. She’s been a supervisor in the Sex Crimes Unit at the Broward County State Attorney’s Office for nearly 25 years, and appears regularly on TV talking about sex crimes and how to prevent them. Honowitz works to educate parents and children about child molestation, and the importance of reporting abuse as the first step to healing.
She’s authored two books on the subject of molestation specifically meant to be read with young children: “My Privates are Private” and “Genius with a Penis, Don’t Touch.” These books try to make it easy for parents to comfortably and frankly discuss inappropriate touching with their children and teach the importance of speaking up and reporting abuse.
