i haven't posted for a very long time and I'm sorry I haven't been around to respond to the amazing people who have helped me through my darkest times. I hope you are all finding your strength.
i found out in late August that I am now the subject of an investigation (non criminal - it's my professional board that's investigating me).
They got "an anonymous accusation " of 3 claims - child porn, harboring a sex offender, and failing to report. I was devastated. I have worked my whole life for my dream job and I'm damn good at it.
i know who accused me - as soon as my daughter was molested, she woke me up and I immediately called the cops and it was horrible but he's in prison now and we started moving on with our lives.
then I got knock on the door. I had just gotten a dog the week before for my daughter (the victim) to help her and me as a form of therapy. It was animal control saying they got an anonymous call saying I was abusing the dog by leaving it for weeks at a time with no food. I had just gotten the dog the week before and had been off work the entire week, home with the dog all day. The officer apologized when she met me and asked me if I had an angry neighbors. My daughter cried the next 3 nights wondering if they were coming to take her dog away.
then I got a letter saying an anonymous person reported me for the false claims I listed above. The only people I know who would even know to go directly to my state licensing board, and also who harassed my ex after that fateful night, and then started staring at me menacingly anytime I left my house, was my cop neighbor. They think I was complicit in my daughter's abuse, and want to get me fired from my job. I've already put my house up for sale to get away from them, but I'm facing lawyers bills and the odd chance that my daughter may be outed as a victim at her own school because her mom is the subject of this investigation. I don't know what to do.
has anyone else been blamed for their child's abuse? I IMMEDIATELY called the cops when she disclosed and he went to jail based on my report, and yet my own neighbors want to see me lose everything.
How many of you are in the position of not knowing the specifics of what happened to your child? I don't have access to the forensic interview because it's still part of an open investigation (not against the boy who abused my son, but against my son's father for child endangerment because he knew the older boy/stepbrother had a history of this), and one of the judges we've seen on the dependency...
Well...everything is done and over with. To say that we are NOT happy w/ the outcome would be an understatement. 1) A plea deal was offered ... we knew nothing about it...the DA blamed the child advocate for not telling us. 2) Her abuser took a plea deal of Aggravated Battery & Aggravated Child endangerment (original charges were: Aggravated Indecent Liberties w/ a Child) and he does not have...
