Slap on the Wrist
The abuse was finally discovered when my mother took me to a park and asked me if my father had ever touched me inappropriately. I told her yes. She called a therapist who eventually notifed the Department of Human Services. Despite their findings of severe sexual abuse, my father was able to work out a deal with the Tulsa County District Attorney's office and avoid prosecution. His life would continue as normal.
Untrue. Again, no one from the District Attorney's office interviewed me or asked me what I wanted to happen to him.
I was never asked whether or not I was willing to testify. No one from the District Attorney's office ever interviewed me.
