Halachic Questions (Jewish Law)

The following was posted to The Awareness Center's daily newsletter

Over the last several years that The Awareness Center has been in operation many newspapers, rabbis and other individuals have contacted us voicing their concerns with the issue of Lashon Hara.

It just dawned on me that no one has ever asked or answer the question regarding what Torah (Jewish Bible) says that we should do with individuals who commit incest, rape or other types of sex crimes? The other issue that keeps coming up is what does Torah say about the way individuals who have been victimized by sexual predators should be treated?

If you have the answers please let me know.
