It's not just prosecutors who understand the value of therapy dogs with child witnesses. If there's a question of false accusation, the defense attorney must prove it, and that often hinges on the child's deposition. These sessions can be intense, and it's in the defense attorney's best interest for the child to be as relaxed as possible, so the truth can come out — unrehearsed, unscripted. Rikki was the first therapy dog to be used in a Florida deposition. And as our defense attorneys have seen, if you get a kid acting like a kid, they'll give you all the details you need, including anything that would indicate a false accusation.
