Exeprt Says 99.9% Certainty Young Girl Was Sexual Abused

A Des Moines mother alleges that her young daughter was being sexually abused by the child’s father. Pictures led the mother’s expert witness to conclude with 99.9 percent certainty that there had been abuse.

As reported in the DesMoines Register, the mother called the child-abuse hot line and began taking the child for weekly therapy sessions. The state’s child-abuse specialist examined the child and found no signs of sexual abuse, though child sexual abuse experts say lascivious acts don’t necessarily leave physical evidence.
