The best thing to do at this point is to cooperate with the CPS. They carry a huge amount of weight when they go into court - basically, whatever they ask for, the Judges give them. It's like dealing with the Nazi party in Berlin in 1941.

If your boyfriend isn't guilty of anything, then he shouldn't act guilty.

Eventually you may need a good lawyer; plan to write a retainer check for around $5000.

If you really don't know what to believe, then you must protect your children. they come before your boyfriend. Separate at least until you know what you believe. If CPS believes that your boyfriend is a problem and you won't leave him, then they could very well take the kids from you.
