Supreme Court Rules on Child –Victim Interviews


The U.S. Supreme Court rules on a case involving a 9 year old Bend girl questioned in an abuse investigation. The high court threw out a lower court's ruling that authorities need warrants to talk to potential victims of sex abuse at school.  Oregon's Attorney General, John Kroger who argued the case applauded the decision, saying it will give police and child welfare workers greater leeway to protect children from abuse. The girl's mother sued, claiming that her daughter's civil rights were violated, when she was removed from her classroom and questioned by authorities about abuse, without parental consent. Authorities were investigating whether the girl was abused by her father. Charges against him were later dropped.
