NOT CHARGED | CHILD MOLESTATION (DMC No. 1466) State v. Mr. L.: Mr. L. was having problems with his wife and his mother in law. In the past, the mother in law had accused him of molesting his daughter when she was 3 years old. The daughter was now 8 years old and was known to frequently tell lies. The daughter now claimed that Mr. L. had had anal sex with her 50 plus times. Upon a forensic medical exam, only 1 small anal fissure was found. We brought in a doctor who reviewed the findings and stated this was consistent with merely a “hard stool” and in no way amounted to evidence of anal rape. C.P.S. was brought in, and they interviewed the family the girl was now staying with. The family stated the girl would constantly tell lies and make up fantastical stories. As far as her knowledge of certain sex acts, it was discovered that her babysitter’s brother was a registered sex offender and had been discussing the sex acts with all the children the babysitter brought over. In the end, we met with the Pinal County Attorney and they decided to not charge Mr. L., protecting him from facing life in prison. However, they did begin an investigation into the babysitter’s brother, who was a registered sex offender.
