    The first abuse-related case I heard of was 25-30 years ago:
    a patient of my husband's who was having sex with her uncle who was a priest. This was not child abuse (since she was 18) and not rape either, but using his authority "from God" to push a gullible young woman to have sex with him.
    My husband made some rather strong suggestions to her. She never came back.
    My guess is that her case is not all that uncommon, but you never hear about it because it's a matter of ethics and abuse of power, not crime.
