Eww. I missed hearing about this. How creepy.
Peter McNeal -- Former Cake Drummer's Wife Files for Divorce On Heels of Child Molestor Trial | TMZ.com
Peter McNeal -- former drummer for the band Cake -- narrowly avoided a conviction for child molestation last month, but he couldn't avoid divorce papers from his wife of 13 years ... TMZ has learned.
According to the documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Jill McNeal cites "irreconcilable differences" -- and she's asking the court for sole physical custody of their two children, ages 10 and 8.
Peter was accused of molesting a 3-year-old girl at a Thanksgiving dinner back in 2009. A judge declared a mistrial last month after a jury was deadlocked 11-1 against McNeal.
In the docs, Jill says she's cool with Peter having visitation rights, and joint legal custody of the kids. However, she is asking the court to deny him the right to any spousal support.
McNeal's molestation case might be retried ... he's due back in court in August.
"She also explained why the family waited two years before reporting the alleged incident to police, insisting they wanted to be "100 per cent certain" before making such a serious accusation, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. "

I'm not sure my children can remember anything from when they were three. I suppose if it were particularly traumatic, perhaps...
I don't know how two years would ensure they were 100% positive she knew what she was saying/was indicating reality.

She should have been interviewed by a therapist who is trained in working with toddlers and sexual abuse WHEN it happened.
