Suffice it to say that Rabbi Horowitz, Dr. Twerski and others know of too many such cases.

Dr. Twerski and I were careful to steer away from the wide range of issues that are part of the abuse matter because we wanted the attention on our message which is that victims should go for help.
...
Dr. Twerski and I have an important message to victims.

Rabbi Horowitz, and Dr. Twerski, if you agree, can you please ask them for us?

BTW, some of my confusion came from reading your article just after some other material by Rabbi Twerski and confounding your thinking on reporting, because you were writing together about therapy.
BTW, I have just completed an exchange with Rabbi Twerski in my blog that references Rabbi Eliyashivs ruling supporting reporting to civil authorities if there are raglayim l'davar (litterally legs to the matter- if there is substance to the accusation). Unfortunately I have heard many variaant intereprestations, does it mean one complainant or more than one, etc. Unfortunately the devil is in the details and we know the devil usually tries to muddy the rules and the details in his favor, just as he has an unusual affinity for interpretations of lashon harah that the chofetz chaim never heard.
