A follow up to something I would never have believed

As some of you may remember, if you read this blog with any sort of regularity, a couple of months ago, something happened that threw me for a loop. At the time things were still up in the air, nothing was certain, and I didn’t have the full story, or all of the facts.

In fact, it all seemed so unbelievable, and implausible, that maybe, just maybe it was being blown completely out of proportion and nothing would come of it at all.

I was wrong. (and I’m glad I was) I checked out our state’s Court’s Administrator website, and found out that on July 11, 2006, charges were indeed filed by the state against X. They have charged him with 2 misdemeanors, sexual misconduct in the 1st degree, and assault in the 3rd degree. His next court date will be in September.

I am tempted, more by curiosity than anything, to go to the hearing to see what the evidence is against him, and what his defense is. I could claim I’m there to get all the facts to make an informed decision in regards to his contact with my daughters. Although, really, it’s kind of late to be gathering information about this and trying to make a decision in regards to my daughters now. I’ve known about this since June, the incident happened in April.

I’m glad this didn’t just ‘go away’ that something is being done, charges have been filed and he will be held accountable for what he’s done. Maybe, just maybe, he’ll get it this time, (unlike his brother who never seems to get it).

Well, at least something has come from it all. Will be interesting to see what happens in the future.
