Subject: Children

Nightline explored a current dilemma in the criminal justice system - the reluctance of prosecutors to try child sexual abuse cases because of the climate of doubt surrounding young children's testimony. Nightline found that many of the nation's prosecutors are choosing to plead out the cases for lesser charges or failing to prosecute altogether. Most startling, the investigation also revealed that the climate of doubt about children's testimony has been fueled by a combination of p.r., defense experts, and "research" that is without scientific foundation.
