What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Florida
A grandfather makes sexual advances to his 18 year old granddaughter (adopted at 11 by her parents). She's asleep at her GP's house, and GM goes to work, so GP touches the sleeping teen till she wakes up, and she leaves the house. He meets her later to convince her why she should become his mistress.
It comes to light that 2 years ago he also molested her then 10 year old sister, (also adopted), and their then 9 year old cousin. (stepchild of his son).
Police reports made, investigations are initiated, 2 weeks pass, Grandfather finds out about investigation. Grandfather prepares will, leaves everything to grandma, commits suicide.
Police drops the case.
No apologies or acknowledgement is forthcoming to the children/victims.
True cause of pedophile's death is covered up by family, pedophile gets huge funeral, and celebrated by family, friends, church members.
Children are left to carry the blame for Grandfather's death, since they understand the case and subsequent suicide. Both mother's of the 3 children are told not to attend funeral and to stay away with children.
How can justice be had for the children that were victimized ? What avenues are available for them and what are they entitles to ?
pi$$ed off mother.
