We have this wonderful story about a 3rd grader being sexually abused by a female neighbor. Yeah, it's bad, but statements like "I just feel justice needs to be served and it's going to be," the boy's mother said. "She ruined my child." make me want to slap the mother.

1) Your son was going to this woman's house almost daily for a year. (In theory, to play with the 7 year old daughter of the alleged abuser.) What did you do to make sure this was a good idea, safe, useful, etc...
2) Your son isn't ruined, unless his self esteem is completely shattered when he finds out his mother thinks he is ruined. He may have problems, but these can be helped.
