  Most people didn't know if it was true or not even though they suspected it was likely. Those who did know and didn't do anything about it  if it was true contributed to great harm. 
 However, I believe a person should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. If proved beyond a shadow of doubt, they should throw the book at at him. Having been a victim of rumors that were not true and having been tried by public opinion, I have a great appreciation of innocence until proven guilty, and even witnesses can have ulterior motives and lie. Many have been convicted and executed only to find out later they were innocent.
 However, sexual abuse is rampant, and the abusers know exactly how to manipulate the system and doubts and lack of proof in people's minds, and they use that manipulative power on their victims.
It's important that responsibility is taken by journalists and the public to seek the truth, whatever that may be. Out of curiosity, does the statute of limitations apply to civil as well as criminal cases?

Subject: James Levine Incidents

 This is a link to an article published in the NY Times today which copies a
1979 letter from Anthony Bliss, then General Manager of the Met, to a board
member concerning a letter he received about James Levine and sexual
misconduct. He is basically telling the board member that it was deemed to
be scurrilous and not true. Its an interesting read. My feeling is that
he (Bliss) the board and many in the business knew about this all along but
decided it was worth their trouble to cover up and sweep under the rug. I
am not judging anyone, least of all, James Levine but what used to be
considered a subject not to be talked about or brought up is now an
important topic of comment. The world changes and how we view ourselves
and others has changed also.
