If both recipients are willing or “consenting”.

William John Light
William John Light answered on Mar 30, 2019

You aren't "18,19", you are one or the other. Regardless of which age you are, you are an adult.

You need an attorney who specializes in Title IX work. Your daughter has certain rights that can be enforced through the Title IX process.

Do a search for “Title IX attorney San Francisco” and that should be a good place to start.

Hire a criminal defense attorney. There is no recourse against a false accusation except defending yourself unless your son is the victim of intentional misconduct. It would be a very difficult case to claim that a 5 year old was intentionally lying and that a psychologist was intentionally lying.
