    It seems bizarre that the girl would have reported the sexual abuse to the judge, but not to her mother. Also, if the girl described the sexual abuse in a school essay, why didn't someone at the school report it?

    Sounds as though everyone failed this child. If they all knew the situation, they are all responsible.
