FAIL! Phone number given to sexual assault victims turns out to be sex chatline!

Talk about an EPIC FAIL.  A number intended for sexual assault and domestic violence victims has actually turned out to be a very cruel joke. The flyer was mistakenly handed out at the Lake County Sherriff’s office in Florida FOR YEARS until someone finally came forward.

The Sheriff’s Office got a surprising call. “We actually had a victim call us and tell us that one of our phone numbers were incorrect, that it was actually to one of those 1-800 chat lines,” said Lake County Sgt. Jim Vachon.

Employees at the Haven, a domestic abuse shelter for Lake and Sumter counties, are understandably upset.”It disturbs me because I don’t want my victims calling that number. If they are in need of help, if they are upset, that is probably the last number they need to call,” said executive director Kelly Smallridge.

I feel like someone at the Lake County Sheriff’s office intentionally put the number on the flyer as a cruel, sick joke! Now that person may no longer work there, however someone needs to be held responsible. Can you imagine being raped or beaten by someone then to call a number FROM THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE thinking you are getting help…only to hear sex sounds and moans…followed by:

“Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Ladies, to talk to interesting and exciting guys, free, press 1 now,” the message said.

SMH…FAIL.
