What is the name of your state? Texas
I received a phone call on Saturday 2/17 from CPS saying that a call had been made stating neglect and sexual abuse of my 13 yr old MR daughter by another child in the home. The caller had stated 1. That I had taken her to the doctor for a sexual assault exam the previous week. 2. That there was a previous case in ND where we used to live. 3. That she had been "acting out" the previous 3 weeks. None of those things are true.
I questioned all 3 of my kids, the boys are 15 & 17. Both boys stated they had not touched their sister and she just said "everyone" touches her. Keep in mind that she is mentally impaired here....for 4 days I questioned them, specifically asked her about her brothers and very detailed body information, she had no clue why I was asking her and said no one ever touched her.
On Wednesday 2/21 CPS went to school and questioned her, they came to our house and told me that she claimed she had been abused but they would tell me nothing else. The next morning 2/22 I received a call telling me to take her for an exam they had set up. The medical personnel said there was no physical or visible evidence but that based on what she told them they believed something had been done to her. 2/26 the Sheriff's Office called and told me to take her to a forensic interview they had set up. 2/28 the Sheriff's Office had me bring my oldest son in for an "interview", which I had him secretly tape since doing research and discovering that TX is a one-party-recording state.
For various reasons, that would be too lengthy to go into here, I honestly believe my son and think that CPS "guided" my MR daughter in her statements. Now she has made up a story that she changes every time she tells me what happened, they maintain that she has told it the same every time.
I do not know what to do next, I cannot pay the $10,000+ retainer that every criminal lawyer wants and we cannot get one court appointed until he is formally charged.
Can someone please give me some direction here?
Thank you in advance.What is the name of your state?
