Hi, Welson, Thank you for the "Excellent Service" rating, I appreciate it greatly,
Yes, you certainly may ask some follow up questions.
It appears to me that the stepmother is doing irreparable psychological, emotional, and mental harm to your friend's 12 year old daughter. The stepmother is prompting her to say and do what she wants her to say and do in order to use these things against your friend but she's playing mind games with the 12 year old which will stay with her for a very long time.
It would be good if these written communications between your friend and his daughter were introduced into evidence at his hearing, but my concern is that the authorities may have told your friend not only to stay away from the children and his wife, but also they might have told him not to have any communication with them during this time before the hearing. So, if he introduces these written communications with his daughter, they might use them against him. You never said if there is a "Tenporary Restraining Order" entered against your friend. If, in fact, there is such a Temporary Restraining Order, your friend will be cited for Contempt of a Court Order and that can be extremely harmful to him, including being given jail time for the Contempt.
If your friend cannot afford a lawyer, he should apply for legal representation through the Public Defender's Office in his County. They are very experienced lawyers, but they are so loaded down with cases that they cannot give each case the time it deserves. Your friend should not venture into Court without a lawyer because domestic violence convictions will stay on his record the rest of his life, not to mention possible jail time, if he is convicted.
He can also apply here:
His lawyer must interview your friend's daughter to get to the truth that the stepmother is telling her what to do and say. The doctor's character is also questionable and appears to be in collusion with the mother. First of all, on what basis did the stepmother rely in taking the daughter to the doctor and why would the doctor ask her such questions about whether or not she felt safe with her father when he had done nothing to his daughter.
He or his lawyer should get in touch with the stepmother's friends to find out why she is doing this, what is her ulterior motive, is she having an affair with someone ? Why is she doing this to your friend ? There has to be some basic reason and once that is discovered, that can be used against her to impeach her credibility so that she looks like the liar that she is, to the Judge,
If the stepmother is trying to have your friend charged with sex with a minor, he will have that stigma all his life and will constantly have to register as a sex offender. Please, tell your friend that this is not a case where he should go it alone, a lawyer, a good, experienced lawyer is absolutely necessary to fight these charges.
His lawyer will be able to prove that the stepmother lied and made false accusations and he can then ask the District Attorney to file charges and prosecute her for perjury and making false statements to authorities. Your friend can also file a civil lawsuit against her for slander and defamation of character.
