A Former Sex-Crimes D.A.

Robin Sax is a former Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney who specialized in prosecuting sex crimes against children. For over fifteen years Robin has prosecuted some of the most despicable defendants who committed the most heinous crimes.

* Robin is a partner in the Justice Interrupted advocacy radio show with Stacy Dittrich (police officer) and Susan Murphy Milano (violence expert). The Justice Interrupted team highlights cases that have not received the media attention they deserve and Robin, along with Stacy and Susan, advocate for victim's rights, appropriate sentences, and justice.

She also regularly shares her valuable insight and expertise with members of the Los Angeles Police Department, Sheriff's Department, and the California District Attorney's Association.

* Robin is an adjunct professor of Women and Crime at Cal State Los Angeles and a lecturer on criminal law and the justice system in UCLA's Paralegal Training Program.

A Community Leader

Because Robin has worked tirelessly to protect children from sexual abuse and support victims of domestic abuse she has received many community commendations including being recognized by the Women's Political Caucus, Agape Foundation, Justice for Homicide Victims and the American Bar Association.

* In 2001, Robin created the highly successful Kids Safe Day(C), a free program targeted at communities to help educate parents and children. Several organizations now sponsor Kids Safe Days, which provide information about child abuse, sexual assault, abduction, and domestic violence, give members of the community an opportunity to meet law enforcement and public safety personnel and equip families with fingerprints and photos of their children.
* Robin is on advisory boards for PAVE (Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment), The Awareness Center (organization dedicated to addressing sexual violence and abuse), and the NEST Foundation (building awareness for human trafficking).

Robin lives with her husband and three children in Los Angeles, California.

Format: Paperback
While some say too scary, it's denial and under-responding that lead to abused children and wounds left unhealed (not to mention continuing the cycle of abuse). Robin Sax takes her smarts and her passion and arms parents with the consciousness needed to keep kids safe and to work together for a safer culture. This is a scary topic, but when parents carry the fear and anxiety with reasoned consciousness children are safe to just be kids and grow up safe and protected. This is an excellent and important book. Robin has dealt with the horror and turns around to use what she knows in the service of prevention. The best solution to this problem is that growing awareness, transparency and compassion conspire to keep kids safe. Educating ourselves empowers us to be part of the solution: this book does exactly that

I truly appreciate Robins Sax work. It is not an easy subject to write or to read about, but it is one of life's musts, especially to anyone who has children, or works with children. You will learn new information and other misconceptions about kids' safety. Knowledge is the best weapon-- make sure you use it well.

Format: Paperback
Every parent needs to read this book. It's the straight-up truth about the realities of childhood sexual abuse and how to safeguard our kids. Robin Sax writes from her experience as a prosecutor but also as a parent. It's an excellent resource that you will find yourself referring to again and again. The book's format of 100 Most Asked Questions and Answers makes it easy to find exactly what you're looking for, and Robin covers everything a parent might think of. When you know the facts, you can protect your children. Highly recommending this one to parents and caregivers everywhere.

Format: Paperback
As a 29-year law enforcement veteran with 21 years investigating child abuse cases, I can't recommend this book highly enough. Every parent, everyone who has contact with children needs to read this book. Robin has made a difficult and taboo subject easy for everyone to understand. She has removed the fears and hesitation that parents might have when considering whether or not to report child abuse. She spells out the difficulties in prosecuting these types of cases, but also shows the benefits of the process. Robin is an outstanding District Attorney, advocate for children and a great person. This is a difficult subject to deal with, but the knowledge you'll gain to help you protect children is invaluable.

8 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Heather Steele -. Justice on April 27, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book answers every question you ever thought of about how to protect your kids and many you never thought to ask. Instead of using scare tactics, Ms. Sax offers balanced, practical advice in techniques and strategies that will actually work in the real world. For parents who are not sure how to walk the line between being too intrusive or too permissive, Ms. Sax certainly can lead the way. When it comes to difficult decisions like whether to allow sleepovers, how to choose babysitters or nannies, learning why children don't disclose abuse, and what to do if they do, Ms. Sax provides clear and understandable chapters. I highly recommend this book to parents and to those who educate parents on child safety.

Robin Sax looks at the situation through the eyes of an expert and a parent--and then re-examines the landscape from the perspective of a potential predator, exposing hidden vulnerabilities that our children at risk for exploitation.

The book is comprehensive and specific. If your a parent, grandparent, teacher, social worker, day care provider, this book is a "must own" in every library, child center and home across the country.
