One of the other girl siblings reported that client’s father has on multiple occasions touched her under her clothing. Minor reported that she told her sisters and her mother but her mother did not address the issue. Two other sisters confirmed that minor told them about it and also stated that when they were younger he did the same thing to them. They or their therapist told Mother about what had happened. Mother initially denied knowing what her ex-husband had done but later admitted that she knew he had molested the girls but stated she had “taken care of it.” She did not reopen it or take any action to protect the girls from contact with father. The children, including this client, are at risk of abuse by father and mother has failed to protect the girls from him. The Judge ordered this sibling be referred to Pro Bono.
