Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You do not have to consent and allow them to speak with him. You can refuse and do not have to admit or say anything. They do not need to know any discussion has even been had with him since it may indicate to them you could be aware of any wrongdoing. If they were investigating a different issue involving the 8 year old and this came up, let them do what is needed. If this does escalate, then you would want and need to retain legal counsel. A criminal defense attorney could step in and represent his legal interest and make sure he is not taken advantage of and his interest is protected.
I just wanted to follow up and see if there is anything else I can answer or clarify. I am here to help so please just let me know.
It is at your discretion to ignore it or respond and simply advise you do not want them speaking with your son. It is possible that the court system may get involved, depending on what happened. That is why I shared that a criminal defense attorney may be needed, if this escalates and they press the issue or child services gets involved.
Did this help clarify everything?
