Your question falls squarely on the Kavanaugh-Ford approach to how the law operates. A he-said-she-said is amplified and everyone loses.
In your case, the law permits a court to treat the words of a child a the truth. Wouldn't Blasey-Ford have loved to have such treatment by the law? That kid says something, and her words move mountains. That's child protective legislation at work. Also, the defendant has no defense and is not even approached by the government to offer his version of the story: so it's a she-said for the child. Somehow, the government thinks that an accusation made by a child and undefended by the perpetrator solves the case and disposes of the defendant.
In your case, once the child has spoken, the case is over. The defendant is punished and the child is rewarded. Facts don't matter such as the child is oppositional or somehow delusional. Also, different legal concepts appear in these cases, like domestic violence. That's a sweetener that's always mixed in like honey into coffee. The family court judge gloats with pride as she finds against the defendant who hurt a child and also hurt his family despite there being no evidence except the words used to make the allegation.
Be very careful how you vote and whom you vote for. That vote makes all the difference.
