Child abuse cases create extremely negative reactions from law enforcement and the public in general. Unfortunately, there are countless cases where an individual is charged with child abuse unfairly or unjustly. Many times this comes about during a particularly acrimonious divorce and custody battle case as a vindictive ploy by an ex-spouse to be awarded full custody of the children. In other cases a child may be angry with a parent or teacher and claim child abuse as retribution.
In any case this is definitely one area where you will likely not be given the benefit of the doubt, but will be assumed guilty right from the moment the charges are leveled. To protect your future, as well as your rights as a parent, you must call a reputable law firm immediately. It is imperative that you have qualified representation before you speak to a police officer or CPS, so exercise your right to remain silent until your attorney arrives. Being accused of child abuse can destroy your standing in the community and may result in loss of employment, not to mention a label as a pervert or abuser for life.
If you are convicted of child abuse, you will probably never be able to have access to your children again without a chaperone, and could spend time in jail or prison. You could be ordered to attend a treatment program for child abuse offenders, and it is very likely that your job, your reputation and your entire future will be on the line. CPS can remove your children from your home, even when the charges are later proven to be completely without merit. The quicker you resolve charges of child abuse, the better for you and your family.
