(KSL News) Sexual abuse cases involving children are on the rise in Summit County.

Summit County officials say they've investigated about 914 cases since 2001, including 14 new cases just from July and August.

They say more education is needed to prevent child sex abuse from happening, especially in Coalville and Kamas where they've seen the most dramatic increases in those crimes.
