Good morning and I am sorry to hear about what happened and what you are going through. This is an important issue and something that certainly needs to be known and addressed by your sons attorney. I say this because if his failure to see his doctor and get treated resulted or was a cause of the molestation, there could be a defense or mitigating factor, to raise. Of course, he needs to get back into treatment but it needs to be known by his attorney that he was under the care of a mental health doctor, the father was supposed to be taking him to the doctor for treatment and that he failed to do so. His doctor may need to testify on his behalf at trial as well, to show that the lack of treatment and care, resulted in the actions of your son.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
