My children who are only 4 years old have been been accused of sexually abusing a 4 year old girl at a school in France. The mother of the little girl has told the head teacher that my boys are responsible; and the head teacher in turn informed my me. Neither the school or I believe that the incident took place l (for many reasons) but it has been referred to the police. Apparently the case is against "anon" so officially it is a open case while the police investigate. So far two teachers have been interviewed - i know the names of our sons have been brought up in these interviews; plus all the teachers at the school are aware of these allegations. I have emails, recorded meetings etc suggesting that my boys were involved in some incident and as you can imagine this news is heartbreaking. ESpecially as we know it didn't happen.I want justice for them and their reputation! The police are still investigating - and i believe it is unlikely to go far (but you never know!); however i think its wrong that so many people are aware of and know of this allegation. I feel that certain people acted inappropriately in the handling of this situation and believe our children's names have been defamed. Do I have any recourse regarding this?
we have a lawyer - who we have paid. but he seems to not have our interests at heart
