      My question is, if he confessed, why are they still investigating?  Should be "case closed" right?  I'd keep asking questions and find out what the deal is.

    They should keep calling and asking questions, perhaps asking to get a different investigator on the case.  You have the right to have these procedures move along in a timely fashion.  Don't let them get your case lost in the shuffle of paperwork.  The squeaky hinge gets the oil.  Keep calling and asking questions.

    Also bear in mind that the best 'remedy' and result may not be a court case and all the trauma for the victim and the family.  Also this kind of case is not easy and any authority must be sure of what happened etc.    Malicious claims are a very high percentage in general and this makes everyone cautious.

    As it is a case of child abuse, in any modern legal system the perpetrator is bound to face prosecution. The law is always strict where a child's safety is in question and no plea bargaining, compounding or compromise may be available. The police may require more time to investigate and collect all the evidence to establish a prima facie case.

    I was molested when I was 11 yrs old, and because of being threatened with a number of things did not tell until some years later.  The police at that time said that it was my word against his and the case went dead.  Try to avoid this kind of outcome.

    In most of the cases of child molesting the culprit is recognized as of the family members.The victim child remain silent about that for the reason of fear to that person and surprise of being so by that family member.So,continuous question about may harm  him/her little mind.So,in such cases parents must take patients to se3arch about that and a special mental care also needed.And on the other side ,proper punishment to the culprit is mandetory6 to restore family values.
