This case is a conflict case and requires a pro bono attorney to represent a little girl, age 7, who reported that her 10 year old brother sexually abused her. This behavior had been going on for over a year at the time of the report. The department has tried to schedule multiple interviews, but the family would cancel or not show. The child was not in school and could not be interviewed and the brother did not make any disclosures when questioned. The family has participated with Nevada Integrated Health services however and the brother did make some disclosures at that point with the therapist. Both children were sexually abused prior to moving to Las Vegas. Contact has not been made with either child’s father. This child is in need of an attorney to represent her legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is an Adjudicatory Plea Hearing set for June 5, 2019 at 9:45 a.m. in Courtroom 11.
