But we know the investigation into sexual offenses is proceeding separately, as it should. That takes specialized personnel and a different kind of inquiry.I think in the States he'd be charged with assault for the cane attack and child luring or whatever the US equivalent is for the conversations with minors and CP possession which he's admitted to at which point he'd be sent to prison and raped and killed.
Maybe I've got too much confidence in the US system though.
Whether the confrontations with Menzies resulted in charges doesn't seem to be known, but since Menzies hasn't commented on it or stated that he was injured, the officers on the scene may have told everybody to just leave each other alone - not an unusual tack in the U.S., either. If the police did charge Yaniv in that incident, prosecutors would handle that case separately from the unrelated weapons charges.
