In seven cases, the person responsible was living in the same household as the child victim.
Almost 90 children removed from their parents for their own safety were abused or neglected in State care in WA last year.
A Federal Government report revealed yesterday that 87 children were sexually, physically or emotionally abused or neglected in care — almost 2 per cent of the 4725 children in care in WA in 2014-15.
