Overnight her world is shattered when one of the children is suspected of having been sexually abused, and questions are being asked. From this moment on Jessie's life will never be the same again. She is caught up in a distressing police investigation and the devastation worsens with the involvement of the social services. Jessie soon realises that she is faced with an extremely serious and potentially life-changing situation. The Perfect Scapegoat tells Jessie's very personal and at times heart-wrenching account of the abuse investigation and her struggle for many years after to fight for justice and a normal life.
