Although Rosenthal initially claimed that his office initiated the review, it was in fact begun by UT Dr. (Margaret) McNeese, one of the three UT pediatricians who also work at the CAC clinic, said that last September she, Dr. Rebecca Girardet and Dr. Sheela Lahoti became concerned that Taft placed more priority on collecting evidence for potential criminal prosecution than with making sure the children brought to the CAC were properly cared for.
After spending most of October reviewing Taft's work, they contacted the D.A.'s office. Taft was finally removed from the CAC but was allowed to continue on as a sexual assault examination nurse at Memorial Hermann, where she worked part time. Her interviews there also came under review.
