  • Sexual assault detective, the basic steps from report to prosecution

    A young girl that is raped by her father and impregnated. The girl reports anonymously to a detective that a man is sexually abusing his children. (The man being her own father)

    She has also used an audio recording device to record the terribly haunting incident which she has been a part of.

    There are two huge pieces of evidence against the perpetrator.

    1. Audio device depicting clearly what has taken place.

    2. DNA evidence inside her own body.

    I just need to know what happens in between the police being aware of the situation and up until everyone is in court.

    Within this scenario, the detective will probably question the girl and she will present the evidence to the detective. What would the detective do to protect the girl in this situation? Would he take her to the police station? If so, where would she go from there? Because, obviously, he can't leave her in her house with her father....

    Thanks!

    This morning I was investigating a very large bowel movement that I had unloaded into my toilet. I noticed corn, a lot of corn. This was fascinating to me because I have not eatin any corn this month.

      The detective would go to Amazon and buy a book on police procedure for authors.

        In general, we don't do homework assignments or help aspiring writers.

          While not a universal rule, the vast majority of us will not provide support to budding authors, hopeful screenplay writers, docudrama wonks or kids with their homework assignments. Save for the last category, some and myself included would consider providing consultation for a fee since you likely intend to profit from not just our expertise but also our original thoughts; all of which I value.

          Nothing too formal, but if you want to engage one or several of us in your writing endeavor, we could discuss the fee schedule offline.

            *************** has a section where writers can ask questions

            Oops, aparently I can't list the name of a competing website - the system automatically censors it.

            Needless to say, somewhere out there I suspect you will find Real Police running a Net that may help you with your questions.

              One can only wonder what salacious word you used that resulted in FIFTEEN asterisks.

                How do you know we're not just a bunch of posers? You have no way of confirming that we really are LEOs or that the information we are providing you with is accurate, especially when the information is going to be used in an article/book/etc.

                Try taking a trip on down to your local PD. I'm sure there are plenty of Officers you can interview about the subject.

                  Your query has been pretty well answered, although possibly not to your satisfaction. The reasons have been stated. I'd be happy to consult with you, however my fees would probably be what you'd consider prohibitive. Hell, they even scare me.

                    I already made the offer to consult for a fee. I will take offers starting at $300.00 an hour plus royalties.

                      Pretty reasonable rate there Jon . I'm asking 10% on royalties and an additional 10% of the gross for movie rights. That's in addition to my hourly rate of $375.00 per hour, with a four hour minimum.

                        I'll make this easy for you OP.

                        Call me. I'll beat 'em both. 1% royalties and $200.00 an hour.

                          In light of the attempt by Michigan to undercut my retirement fund, I will take .999% on the royalties and drop my per hour fee to $195.95. I do require a base of five hours work though.

                            Ok, there is only one way to settle this.

                            OP, you get all three of us or none of us. $250 an hour, plus 2% royalties and $10,000 signing bonus- each. You should of acted earlier.
