My child is now 42 years old; the molestation took place when she was 7 to 12 years old. the perpetrator was charged with class d and held 2 weeks in jail with 5 years probation. She states now that she lied about the severity of the events and threats. She states 2-3 times a week and with multiple threats of death and dismemberment. She has severe PTSD. Is there any hope of having this retried with the real facts? At the time he plead guilty to "anything she says I did I did?" Not sure if the real truth and a correct charge will help but think there are many like her that at a young age just lied to try and protect herself. Is penetration with fingers considered rape?
Thank you Mr. Gorin. I am haunted by my mistakes and her condition now. I understand your answer. So my mother's were without support and I should have fought harder. Thank for your knidness.
