Sample text

He looked at the behaviour of the various people at the time of the disclosure. The description of the child, ‘We rub faster then powder comes out and spreads over my wee wee’ has the ‘ring of a genuine child’s statement’ and unlikely to be invented by the stepfather. He said, ‘The degree of my satisfaction in this respect easily meets the Briginshaw standard’. The FM was concerned about the child sometimes being cruel to animals. Mary gave evidence that it could be indicative of sexual abuse, but it could also be caused by other stressors, so it was too equivocal to be indicative of sexual abuse.

In some cultures siblings provide a lot of the parenting. They can provide security, say in the school environment, help to adapt, teach each other to play, adjust to social rules and expectations. While no child can provide everything for a younger brother or sister, it is even more important when the parent is in some way dysfunctional. I think it is very important that the two children remain together while in care’. Mr Frank then asked, ‘I would like to put a scenario to you. I want you to consider the following situation.

However, having stated this, the FM accepted the mother ‘as basically a witness of truth’ on the basis of proof referred to in Briginshaw vs. Briginshaw about the assaults. He was even less impressed by the evidence of the father, and where there was a difference he tended to accept the evidence of the mother. Then the FM addressed the issue of sexual abuse. The FM limited his opinion to the question of the ‘unacceptable risk of sexual abuse or what would be in her best interests’. The FM also had a poor view of the stepfather, Mr D, but accepted his account of the disclosure.
