Mandatory Reporter / News Investigation

Interesting insight into the way an investigative reporter views a mandaory reporter, from the Denver Channel:

DENVER -- When children are brought to an emergency room, doctors must report certain injuries to police and social services. The laws are there to protect kids from possible child abuse.

But 7NEWS Investigator Tony Kovaleski uncovered a case in which some doctors made a big mistake.

In October, a first-time mom took her 3-month-old son, Tyler, to the emergency room, expecting to get help. She didn't expect to find herself in the center of an investigation into child abuse.
