About a year ago I witnessed a woman that I was dating

About a year ago I witnessed a woman that I was dating groping my daughter. I had seen her rubbing her own 5 year old daughter's buttocks when the child would lay on her as we watched a movie on a reclining love couch. The first time I saw her do it to my 8 year old daughter I told her that I was not comfortable with that and she was only to run her back. She respected that wish but continued to rub her daughter that way - commenting what a cute and sexy little butt the child had. I never saw her do that with her 6 year old son. Last year, I walked out of one of the rooms and this woman (we will call Jane) was lying on a bed rubbing my daughter's buttocks. I went and grabbed my daughter and I noticed that Jane didn't move so I thought maybe she was in some state of sleep. A couple of nights later I saw her again with her own daughter but I watched for a few seconds to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. Without question she was groping the daughter in a sexual way so I grabbed the girl from her. Again she didn't move. I told Jane I wanted to have a talk with her and I asked her why she was grabbing the children's butts like that and she answered, "because it feels good" to which I replied that was exactly why she shouldn't be and we have taught the kids to not allow anyone to touch there private areas but Jane acted as though she was not interested in hearing this. I broke up with Jane and I called the police. I talked to the detective and he said "oh, it was just probably a mother giving her children a motherly touch". I told him that was not a motherly touch and she is not the mother of my child. I called Jane and tape our conversation where she goes on and on about how she touches and rubs the children's bottoms but never in an inappropriate way. It was an odd conversation as she kept saying, I rub their back, over their butt and back of their legs, I do it all the time". I thought this was the evidence needed for the police to believe me. They never asked to hear it. DCFS investigated and with my daughter it was unsupported (not enough evidence). The detective told me he interviewed Jane and from that resulted in him sending it to the County Attorney's office. I called the police in January and it was not until today the County Attorney did a review and I was told they were not going to prosecute due to lack of evidence. I'm not sure why my eye witness itself wouldn't be enough evidence. My questions are as follows:Q1. Once they decide not to prosecute is that the end of that or can I contact any higher authority?Q2. My state does not have a 'Battery" law and if they did not have enough to prove what she did beyond a reasonable doubt, can I file a civil suit and if my state doesn't have a battery law what could I base the tort on?Thanks

In Massachusetts - I have joint legal and split physical

In Massachusetts - I have joint legal and split physical custody of my children. My ex wife is constantly manipulating our current court order and interfering with my parentingtime. We went to court last sommer and had to have our arraingment made a court order because of her constally trying to stop me from seeing the kids. Now because it doesn't specify times during the summer she wont let me pick the kids up until after 4pm and she enrolled them in a full time all summer, summer camp without my consent and is demanding I pay half. So, now I am forced to ask the court for help again! Will the court put a stop to her doing these things? I can't live like this for the next 12+ years.

I am asking a question teenager who lives near me in

I am asking a question for a teenager who lives near me in Rockledge (Brevard County) Florida. This is his question:I am 17 years old and live with my father. I have just finished my 10th grade in high school. My school hours are five hours per day and I am free to work on my job the remainder of the day. I am a mechanic at my best friend's father's golf cart shop. We build golf carts and I work full time in the summer months and part time during the school season. I net $10 per hour. The owner of the shop (my friend's father) hopes that both his son and I can continue to work in the shop until we graduate from high school. He then plans to open up another shop in the Brevard County area where we will also work. During the past year, my father tried to open his own "handy man" business. It was closed down because he did not have a contractor's license. Because he has a felony record and because his driver's license has been suspended due to a large amount of money owned to my Mother for another child, he cannot find employment. During the past year we had our electric turned off numerous times and on one occasion our water was off for over 2 weeks. We are being evicted from our apartment on March 31st and he has not been able to find another apartment that will accept us. How can I proceed to be emancipated? One of the young men at the golf cart shop that I work with has invited me to come live with him in his small house. I will continue to attend school in my area and I have a Jeep that my grandfather helps me to maintain. Please advise.This is an exceptional young man with great mechanical gifts. Is there any way that I can help him proceed with this process?
