WILL THIS BE THE ONLY TIME MY CHILD WILL HAVE TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED?

Participation in an interview at the CAC does not mean that your child will never have to speak about the incident(s) again. The Assistant District Attorney and Victim Witness Advocate will consult with you about the decision to prosecute the case and discuss your family's involvement in the court process. In addition, some children choose to continue to speak about their experiences with family, friends, and/or are encouraged to speak with counselors as a way to address their thoughts or feelings about what has happened.
