Good for you and good for your family to move as far away as you can from all of that mess. The man who molested my daughter(s) was an old man by the time he had to pay up in civil court. It likely bankrupted him, for he worked hard for his money and came from nothing. Nevertheless, I believe he moved away and lived east of the city where we lived at the tim and moved in with his son and family (I hope there were no small girl children in that family but by then, both his adult children knew what he'd done to my family). I have never heard about or from him again. No doubt dead by now given his age. When my daughter went to civil court, it made me sick just sitting in the same waiting room if you can believe it, with my daughter, while we were all waiting to be cross-examined. I finally asked to be moved to a separate office with her. Our case happened two decades ago; maybe things are handled better now. If you're in the right, don't be afraid...get out there and advocate for sexual abuse once this is all over and bring your experience to some degree (privacy issues for your daughter matter) to the foreground. I've spoken in our community along with the police and the women's shelter about sexual abuse but my daughter lives in another community an hour away. Good luck.
