petition overview | letter
Reform the initial process for Child Abuse ReportingTarget:Ingrid Harita, Head of Orange County Child Protective ServicesSponsored by: Bridget Nelson, mother of a child who CPS failed to protectThe purpose of this petition is to reform the process in which CAST handles reports of Child abuse specifically sexual abuse of a child by a parent. I am doing this for my daughter. She told me that her father and grandfather kiss her pee pee. That both of these grown men play a game with her they call the Hush hush game. CAST determined the abuse to be unfounded. CAST felt she was coached because her story was so consistent and because she could disclose what these men had done to her but not what house or room it occurred in. She disclosed this information a month after she turned four. Looking back the signs were there all along and the odds that it occurred at more than one location is very likely and would most likely explain her inability or unwillengness to disclose a specific location. I created this petition because I beleive her and know that I did not coach her. Up until her disclosure her father and I had a terrific co-parenting relationship. I propose that if a parent reports abuse by the other parent that both parties be polygraphed as part of the initial process instead of waiting until they decide to persue criminal charges. I feel that this would have stopped CAST from making a decision that has ultimately made it possible for my daughter to have increased unsupervised visits with the man who has betrayed her and worst part is that she continue to come home from visits and disclose that the abuse continues and I have no way of protecting her legally.

Child Abuse by Parent
6 years ago

I would be glad to sign any petition that protects a child from abuse, espicially sexual abuse and it being done by a parent makes it even more discusting, a parent is suppose to protect how could they do something like this. They should be held accoutable and punished to the fulllest extent of the Law.

I would be happy to toughen the laws on parental sexual abuse.  Unfortunately polygraphy is not scientific and not reliable which is why even after so many years it is not admissable in a courtroom.  Because of the pitfalls involved in polygraphy and the severe effects of even an unfounded accusation od sexual abuse of a child, I would oppose this particular petition.

I am talking about the protection of our children and making parents and lovedones aware and stiffer penalties of the PERPETRATORS. What do you mean by polygraphy?
