Child Abuse Case 21

The police brought a 4-year-old girl to a child advocacy center. She had disclosed that her mother's boyfriend had touched her genital area with his fingers. The incident occurred 75 hours prior to arrival at the CAC. She denies observing ejaculation or having genital-to-genital contact. She has bathed and changed her clothes. There are no suspicious ano-genital findings.

  1. Not collect forensic evidence because the disclosure is of fondling.
  2. Consider collecting forensic evidence because DNA may still be isolated despite a lack of factors associated with evidence detection.
  3. Not collect forensic evidence because she has bathed and the incident occurred greater than 24 hours ago.
