    I spoke with a Social Worker about a child abuse case.  I didn't submit a written statement, sign any documents, or agree to be a witness.  I suspect that the Social Worker recorded my conversation with him and may be using this conversation without my consent.

    Any statement you make to a Public Official, the social worker in this case, in regards to an investigation, anything you say can be used as evidence in a legal matter. It is best to only report facts and if there is abuse, help the children out.

    They can use it. But, where I am anyway, it is anonymous. They do not want to endanger the people who report to them. If you are worried you can always call the worker or the worker's supervisor.

    Well, you got about six months to a year before they'll get anywhere near the kids, so there's plenty of time to think about it. If you are having second thoughts about your statement you should contact the social worker and tell them so. If there is no abuse there is no concern. If there is, let them handle it.
