House Bill 362, passed in 1989 (adding section 67-1405 to the Idaho Code), expanded the Attorney General's duties to require preparation of an annual report to be submitted to the legislature reporting the incidence of felony child sex abuse charges filed in adult and juvenile courts in the state. A research team from Research, Training, and Evaluation Associates worked in conjunction with the Offices of the Governor and the Attorney General to collect data and prepare the report to comply with this legislation. This team has collected data for the past seventeen reports. Specifically, data were collected on site on child sex abuse cases filed in district and juvenile courts throughout the state for the period of July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2007. The data were analyzed by the research team and submitted to the Offices of the Attorney General and the Governor for review. Governor Butch Otter and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden submitted the completed report to the legislative leadership.
