Thank you. I did talk to the investigator yesterday to follow up on our original conversation. Many of my questions did not start until I was driving home and started processing the discrepancy between the child services report and what the investigator talked about. The "witness" did not wait for the child to go inside the home, apparently, nor does the investigator plan to follow up further on the matter, is my understanding.IGNORE PRG... he has no clue. I do these type of cases. Eyewitness accounts matter not. If the child was dropped off at a particular address and went inside, then they should start with that house. However, I don't think that picture "lineup" would satisfy any type of challenge. Mandated reporters are NOT supposed to do an investigation however prior to reporting.
So when CPS drops off door alarms, I should keep it strictly to the doorway? "Thank you, goodbye." My dad thinks I should share the concerns with the CPS worker about the lack of investigation that went into a child last being seen dropped off by an adult male at 3 a.m. at the wrong home.
The defense attorney I called earlier said unless I'm charged with a crime, they can't help.
And either way, I'm of course concerned about my child having a confirmed and terrifying sleepwalking incident. I'm also concerned with the way this whole thing was handled and don't want her pegged for something that she didn't do.
