I am the parent of a daughter who was sexually abused. At the time this happened I had just been married for 4 months and was happily in love and never thought this could happen. As soon as I found out I left him and the state pressed charges. He was initially charged with rape however took a plea for a lessor sentense of child endangerment (3 years probation-no counseling required) as there was no evidence just his word against hers and I guess they wanted this off of the books. During our seperation I found out I was pregnant so I was unable to get a divorce. I have since done so and requested supervised visitation unless he is found not guilty of the charges. Of course he wants to take me back to court for full visitation (weekends and summers) because he states he got off from the rape charge. I let him take her a few times to the mall and to see his family without supervision but was recently recommended not to do so. I am having a hard time with this. I keep thinking that yes he is sick by doing this to his 13 year old step daughter but surely he would not do it to his 1 year old biological daughter would he ? He does not have a past record of this ? I am so confused because he is fighting me and will maybe win because he has way more money than I do. I need to hear something, anything from someone to help me thru this. I have been to counseling but it did not help. I can saythat I know he loves her very much and that makes it hard as well. Help with any advise please!!
