How old is your daughter? I assume the child's older siblings informed you, if I understand you correctly? Who informed you about the "reverse allegations"? CPS? Have you been contacted by law enforcement? Sounds like you need an attorney big time. Feel free to contact my office for a free, no obligation consultation.
