My question involves criminal law for the state of: Virginia
Here's some background. My girlfriends stepdad is being charged with sexual assault. I would like to know if the evidence given is enough to bring him to trial and if so, what sort of sentence he is looking at. He is currently being held without bond in jail awaiting his next date to apply for bail or something.
He has molested my girlfriend and her twin sister every since they were 9 until they were 16 (both recently turned 17) when I found out and quickly intervened. There is no evidence, just their word against his. The mother of them searched his computer and found a child pornography website in his favorites.
After a few days of being in jail, he somehow contacted one of his friends and asked her to go to the house and retrieve his laptop (which the mother had searched found nothing, the child porn website was found on his desktop, which was quickly confiscated by the police). The mother was home and (of course) refused to hand over the laptop. After searching the laptop and the laptop case further, she fund a USB in the laptop case which contained more child pornography, which she turned over to the police.
I'm sorry for the long post, but I would really like to know if the evidence (2 testimonies from 2 minors for object sexual penetration; aggravated sexual battery, and indecencies with minors. An illegal child porn site in his favorites. and lastly, a USB which contained more child pornography) is enough for him to be brought before a grand jury in court.
