The simple reason is that they have not been convicted. The more complicated reason is that lots of money, PIs, lawyers and the willingness to corrupt government officials makes you effectively immune to even being charged.
No sensible person in law enforcement will go after scientology when they *know* that doing so will get them investigated back to the 4th grade and sued into poverty.
Consider what happened in the Lisa McPherson criminal case. The police said the evidence called for three counts of manslaughter against Lisa's "caretakers" i.e., the people who were holding her captive while she deteriorated and died. The DA, Bernie McCabe, filed the least possible charges misdemeanor charges he could against Flag, expecting they would pay the small fines and be done with it.
He was wrong and after ten million dollars of scientology litigation expenses, and the case starting to ruin the DA's budget, he used a flimsy excuse to drop the case.
Years ago the Clearwater police had evidence for a racketeering case against scientology. But prosecuting it would have cost more than they could possibly afford. They tried to obtain outside funding and finally had to give up and live with the cult ruining their community.
I think that exposure, mostly through the uncontrollable Internet, will eventually put scientology out of business. If the Internet didn't exist though, I suspect that eventually citizens would resort to direct physical action. All the lawyers who have been up against scientology (and now won't take such cases) are most reluctant to discuss this, but to my knowledge not a single one of them thinks the abuses of scientology can be solved by conventional use of law enforcement and the courts.
