Defending Yourself against Accusations of Child Abuse

Accusations of child abuse are not taken lightly in the court of law. When dealing with an individual accused of child abuse, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and judges can be unforgiving and biased. Because of this significant bias against individuals accused of abusing a child, it is absolutely essential to seek out exceptionally capable legal representation should you be accused of this crime.

Are you looking for an attorney for a child abuse case in Newport Beach? No matter what the circumstances, if you stand accused of child abuse in any form, then you should hire an Orange County criminal defense attorney immediately.

The Many Faces of Child Abuse

When most people think of child abuse they picture black eyes and bruises. They do not always realize that abuse can come in many, more subtle forms. One prominent form of child abuse that most people do not associate with the crime is negligence. Child neglect can be just as harmful to a child as verbal abuse.

Individuals are oftentimes falsely accused of emotionally abusive behavior such as:

  • Negligence
  • Excessive criticism
  • Threatening language

Because these forms of abuse do not leave visible signs of abuse such as cuts or bruises, the prosecution will rely heavily on witness or character testimonies to secure a conviction. Children can also be susceptible to manipulation and suggestion, recalling false memories under the insistence of a psychologist of prosecuting attorney. A good defense attorney will be able to protect you from these unfair strategies.
