Maybe the defense attorney should know that the girls probably replied to specific questions with an "I don't know" because such experience for anyone, especially for a child is not pleasant to remember. It is very logical that they are blocking some specifics because it is a way to avoid the pain of remembering the abuse.

Those friends of Carbajal should questions themselves if they would feel comfortable leaving their own children with him without supervision; then, lets ask them again if they still support him.
