Tjaden, Patricia G.; Thoennes, Nancy
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n6 p807-21 Nov-Dec 1992
Analysis of records of dependency and criminal filings in 833 substantiated intrafamilial child abuse and neglect cases in 3 U.S. cities indicated that legal intervention was rare, with dependency filings and prosecutions in just 21% and 4% of the sample, respectively, although treatment plans and out-of-home placements occurred more frequently.
