Does my daughter have to go to the local police station and report to the police officer first and then report to the DA?
HelloThat's entitrely up to you. I suggest that there is no way you or your daughter or family can be charged or held responsible for anything that the man did.I suggest that in speaking with her, you do not have to answer any questions that you feel uncomfortable with. It may get uncomfortable if this wife is going to try to make it appear that your daughter at her young age somehow enticed this man into these acts. And, of course, that may be what she will do because she will want to somehow justifty these acts by her husband - who I'm sure in her mind would not do this So you need to be prepared for that.I cannot tell you to talk or not talk to her. But it seems odd that she is making a request of this nature at this time. Perhaps, consider talking to the DA because there may be a reason they have that this should not be discussed
