Who is responsible for this?

Q: I just find out that my 8 years old son was sexual abuse by a 10 years old student in the school bathroom. I went to the police station to make a report and they just give me a number of a detective who are supposed to come to the house to talk to my child but it has been past 3 days and I called him and he told me that he will come to my house to the end of the week, but he ask me what i want him to do for my child?also went to the school and speak to the principal who told me that they will report it to the department of education. The only thing I know is the child is suspended. But how about my son. He still needs to go to school. The school it doesn't have cameras and I am terrified that something else can happen to my son even do they told me that they will have my child supervise. What are my son's rights in this case. What I suppose to do legally.

A: David's Answer: If you feel the school is negligent, you can speak to an attorney about suing the school. You otherwise can't force the police to take action, however, as it is completely within their discretion to investigate and/or prosecute any particular crime. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Abuse attorney for more info.
