I found out a few days ago that the prosecutor that should be helping my girls is doing the best he can to discredit them. I have to give a little background on this- when I first met the DA we really had it out. He had cut off contact between my husband and our son. My son is not a victim and I argued that until his father was found guilty of anything my son had the right to see him. He repeatedly tried to bully me into submission by telling me that he would have the children removed from my home, have me brought up on charges etc...But as angry as it made him I was right and he was forced to remove the no contact order. Okay now to fast forward a few months. My children set up a meeting with the prosecutor to discuss the fact that they did not agree with most of the charges and that they wanted to see their father get treatment as soon as possible. They let him know that they only wanted him to be charged with crimes he had actually committed. The DA told them that it is a common practice to "stack" charges to get the defendant to plea to as much as possible. The girls told him that they would no longer cooperate if that is what he was going to do. Then I found out that since that meeting he has stated on numerous occasions that the girls wishes will not be taken into account and that I must be pushing them to do things they don't want to do. He told my husbands lawyer that he would do whatever he could to get the judge to disregard any statements me or my children make at sentencing. My kids are furious but what can we do?
