Thank you for the additional information. DCS is going to want to speak with you and at some point your son. This is a serious accusation and you also may want to retain a criminal defense attorney to be present at the hearing/meeting, when the time comes. It is good that you were proactive in placing him in therapy but the next thing is to see if any type of charges will be filed against him or how the State will proceed.
