    Can CPS take all 3 of my children because of my 14 year old, lied???

    My 14 year old son and my husband fight all the time. They don't get a long. My son told his therapist that my husband shot him with a bb gun. CPS came over and questioned the kids, when I wasn't looking my son showed 1 CPS agent the pellet gun my husband had and she took pictures of it. The pellet gun is 3x's the size of the bb gun that was supposedly used. CPS told me that it was attempted murder and that if they take my kids they will not let me have them, because I didn't call the police to protect my children. I wasn't even there during the alleged incedent, that my husband denies. But, CPS says I should have called the police when I found out. They are coming back on Tuesday to question my husband. Can they charge him with attempted murder and take my kids away? Oh and this supposedly happened over a year ago. Is this legal??

    I don't see why this wouldn't be legal pending what their investigation turns out. If your husband really did do this, then he can get prosecuted criminally although attempted murder seems to be a stretch for me.
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.
