I have a seven-year old daughter whose mother is in a relationship with an alcoholic who's been charged with sexually assaulting an adult female. I've applied to the courts to prevent any contact between my daughter and the alleged offender, but their position is that there is no proof that men who assault adult females present any danger to children.:?

Salter mentions many studies in this book that demonstrate that sex offenders do not restrict themselves to just one type of victim.
That this boyfriend is an alcoholic should also raise red flags. Alcohol releases inhibitions and decreases judgement concerning in sexual matters, increasing the risk to the child.
I can't believe the court takes such a cavalier attitude. Is there a children's advocacy group in your area that could help you with this? Social Services may also be some help. I hope this information helps you protect your child.
