My husband has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor but insists he’s innocent – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor 20 years ago – long before we met.

We have been together for four years.

He is 48 and I am 39 and have a daughter aged 12 who loves him like a dad.

He insists he has been set up and is innocent, but social services are assessing whether he can stay here with me and my daughter.

I am sticking by him but it’s just his word against theirs.

Your girl must wonder what is upsetting you and him so much.

Explain to her what has happened in simple terms – that someone believes your husband did something wrong to them in the past but he says they are mistaken and the truth will come out in court.
