The Courts: Child Sexual Abuse
“Prosecuted But Not Silenced” –
This story is hard. The safety of her daughter, sexual abuse physical and emotional proof by physicians and psychologists ignored, Maralee spent eight years separated from her child (taken into foster care) after her husband continued to sexually abuse her in visitations. Family law is unable to manage many of these cases, and poorly trained attorneys for the child (Guardian ad litem or GAL’s), and judges are influenced by their desire to “maintain 50/50 custody”, even in cases that would be better handled in criminal court.
