”For most of her life, “Little House on the Prairie” star Alison Arngrim hid a painful secret: She’d been sexually abused by a family member during her childhood, before landing the role of TV villain Nellie Oleson on the ‘70s series. Arngrim didn’t share her story with the world until she was 42, after learning about a loophole in California law that allowed sexual predators to avoid jail time ― even if convicted ― if they were related to their victim. Offenders could even have their records wiped clean in exchange for undergoing therapy.
Learning about this so-called “incest exception” left Arngrim outraged.”
