Because of the potential of criminal charges being filed against someone, it is clearly I'll-advised for your son to appear at any court proceeding or to respond to any inquiries without the help of an attorney. Anything he does or says will be considered by both the police and CPS. Your son needs to meet with an attorney as soon as possible so that he can get a clear understanding of what investigation, cases and procedures will be taken. Please let me know what follow up questions you have. It is certainly I'll-advised to assume nothing bad will happen. Your son may feel nothing can happen to him because he did not harm the child. It would be great if the legal system worked perfectly but it does not. If I have answered your question, please hit the accept button so that I may be paid.
