Did Mom Coach Her Daughters To Lie About Abuse?

Did Mom Coach Her Daughters To Lie About Abuse?

Shelly adopted her two granddaughters when they were young children, because her daughter, Roxy, was deemed an unfit mother. Recently, the two girls, age 7 and 9, have claimed that Shelly’s live-in-boyfriend, Jason, touched them inappropriately. Shelly claims the allegations were investigated, and the social worker stated that the girls were told to lie and being coached. Shelly and Jason say they believe Roxy is coaching the girls — bribing them with a pony — in hopes of regaining custody.
