dcf and molesting case continued

for those of you who have followed my case
the detective questioned my 10 year old brother in law and he denied everything and he wont tell on his step father SO i was told there is nothing they can do unless i press charges which i am not becuase i see no point.
i feel bad to say this but now i know why people dont tell when it comes to this kind of stuff and why they dont go to the authorities becuase all it does is break up families with no justice vindicated.
im at a loss for words
i just found this out today

  • The police and CPS can only do so much if the 10 year old won't say anything. They can't just go on what you say. It is terrible that it will continue because this child won't say anything. Maybe the stepfather threatend then boy if he told. Pressing charges against this 10 year old will accomplish nothing. I feel sorry for you, your husband, child and the BIL. But please don't blame yourself or the police, they did all they can do. They cannot force your BIL to say anything.

  • You did everything you could. Hopefully your BIL's Stepfather will back off since some attention as been brought to it. Try to think positive and know that you are still in my thoughts.
