overtired it is true that any jury is symphatic to a child who has been abused, it is also weary of false allegations. there have been some recent trails where men who were accused have gotten not guilty verdicts. this child will have to testify, she will have to be cross examined, it is just a fact...

Marina to be honest, it would suprise me if they didnt take it to family court. it becomes a matter of them covering their butts. if they take it to court and do not have any evidence, then it is the judge who through it out and they are not to blame if something bad happens. in my case it was the j...

i just feel like i need to make a comment. often children of a young age will lie about who is actually abusing them with a fear of some kind. if the g/f is abusing her, she may feel safer accusing the b/f. it is called perpetrator (msp.) substitution. since you have your own therapist and she can n...

eye my veiw on this is that most of the "abuse" cps claims happens in the home is not abuse by criminal definition. a man continually beats or rapes his child or his g/f's child is abuse, but a man who leave a small bruise on a child after a rare spanking is not abuse, if it were there would be alot...

The laws on how sexual abuse cases are handled are different from state to state. if your husband has not been arrested and if he were in the US, i would say they are going to take it in front of Grand Jury to see if the evidence is sound for an arrest.
