  1. I am pretty sure they have to report that however there is a hotline you can call.

    You should want that reported. It is worse then somebody breaking into your house and stealing everything you own.

  2. All she could do is encourage you to report it, but she can not do so herself.. everything you say has to be confidential other than if she believes you’d harm yourself or others: ie suicidal thoughts/actions, or saying you want to kill someone.

    If you were raped, you really need to tell a trustworthy adult. This crime will not stop until there’s more awareness and if you tell someone the guy who did it won’t be able to hurt any other girls.
