Sarah Guggisberg discovered her son Jacob was sexually abused years after the incident due to a loophole in state law. In Minnesota, the state will not automatically inform both parents in cases where the couple is estranged.
Dayton signs 'Jacob's Law'
The governor has signed a law that requires that both parents be notified if their child is a possible victim of abuse. The old law required that only one parent be notified. A mother from Clara City fought for the law after her son was sexually abused by a neighbor. Police notified her ex-husband, but she did not learn about the abuse until years later.
