Florida Statute Chapter 39 requires the Department to conduct an assessment and assist the family in receiving appropriate services when a child aged 12 or younger has allegedly committed an act that meets criteria of child on child sexual abuse.
Child on Child Sexual Abuse refers to any sexual behavior between children which occurs without consent, without equality, or as a result of coercion.
These behaviors range from non-contact sexual behavior such as making obscene phone calls, exhibitionism, voyeurism, and the showing or taking of lewd photographs to varying degrees of direct sexual contact, such as frottage, fondling, digital penetration, rape, fellatio, sodomy, and various other sexually aggressive acts.
There are five options available to Hotline staff when assessing an allegation of child on child sexual abuse. Which option staff will utilize depends upon what is ascertained during the interview with the reporter.
The options are outlined below:
FSFN child on child sexual abuse special conditions when the alleged juvenile sexual offender is age 12 or under
Phoenix child on child sexual abuse template when the alleged juvenile sexual offender is age 13 to 17
FSFN foster care referral when the victim and/or alleged juvenile sexual offender is age 13 to 17 AND resides in a Department licensed placement
Phoenix child on child referral when the victim and/or alleged juvenile sexual offender is age 13 to 17 AND resides in a non-licensed placement
Phoenix screen child template when the allegations of child on child sexual behavior does not meet criteria
Parent needs assistance special conditions intake are calls to the Hotline that do not meet the statutory criteria for an abuse, abandonment, or neglect investigation but the Hotline staff identifies the family may be in need of services. CFOP 175-28
Intakes alleging maltreatment of a child take precedence over all special conditions intakes, including “Parent Needs Assistance”. Hotline staff must first assess the situation and determine whether there is reasonable cause to believe that the child has been abused, neglected, or abandoned.
