- As child sexual abuse is a particularily heinous crime, I was wondering if you plan to ensure that police aggressively investigate these crimes, including asking all males with known contact with the mother to provide samples for comparison and/or obtain warrants to collect a DNA sample from a suspected rapist?
- How will the crime be adjudicated if the father is the same age as the girl (or younger), will she (also) be prosecuted for the crime of having sex with someone under the age of 14?
- What are your abilities to prosecute if the sex act did not take place in the state of Kansas?
- Do you currently take DNA samples from children born to females who were under the age of 14 at the time of conception?
- Does the state of Kansas currently conduct investigations of sexual abuse every time the state is notified that a female who is under the age of 14 (or was under the age 14 at the time of conception) gives birth or has a miscarriage? Do you prosecute all offenders in these cases?
- Does the state of Kansas currently prosecute all healthcare providers involved in pre-natal treatment of a girl under the age of 14 (or who was under the age of 14 at the time she was impregnanted) for failure to report sexual abuse if there is no documented evidence they reported the case to the authorities (or verified it had previously been reported)?
I look forward to your reply.
