CRIME STORIES ‘In the Valley of Sin’: CPS worker speaks up, flees to Canada with 5-year-old

“In the Valley Of Sin” is a six-hour docu-series that examines the mid-90’s witch-hunt that pitted neighbor against neighbor in Wenatchee, Washington, when police uncovered a monstrous child sex ring known among its membership as ‘The Circle.’

Local authorities alleged that dozens of children were raped in the bedrooms of their parents, in the homes of their neighbors, and at ritualized orgies on the altar of a church. But there was one problem: there was no sex ring, a truth that only emerged after 43 parents were arrested and dozens of children were made wards of the state.

Today, Nancy Grace speaks with a social worker who questioned the claims. Ultimately, Paul Glassen was fired, and he was so worried about repercussions that he moved his family, including his 5-year-old son to Canada.

Joining Nancy Grace today:

Dr. Theresa Gil, Ph.D. – Professor of Psychology and Psychotherapist, 25 years Working with Child Abuse and Trauma Victims, Author: “Women Who Were Sexually Abused as Children: Mothering, Resilience, and Protecting the Next Generation”
Tom Grant – Award-winning journalist (30+ years), former reporter, KREM, Associate Professor of Journalism at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, co-executive producer of “In the Valley of Sin” and other documentaries
