Press Release, Office of Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh

BALTIMORE, MD (January 10, 2019) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced today that his office has established a new telephone hotline for individuals to report child sex abuse.

Office of the Attorney General Child Sex Abuse Hotline: 410-576-6312

Victims of an abuser associated with a school or place of worship, or individuals who have knowledge of such abuse, can share this information by calling the hotline number above or by email to [email protected].

Callers may be asked, but are not required to submit, the following information: the caller’s name and contact information, name of abuser, where the abuse occurred, timeframe of the abuse, and any other details they would like to report. In some cases we may refer the information reported to our office to the local State’s Attorney where the abuse occurred.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at [email protected]

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
