Have You Been Falsely Accused of Sexual Abuse?

Posted by J. Benjamin Stevens | Mar 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

NOTE: THIS ENTRY CONCERNS FALSE ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AND IS IN NO WAY INTENDED TO DIMINISH THE IMPORTANCE OF SEXUAL ABUSE. SEXUAL ABUSE IS REAL AND HAPPENS. IF YOU ARE AN ABUSER, THIS ENTRY IS NOT FOR YOU.

False sexual abuse allegations have become more common in divorce and custody cases. The majority of time the allegations turn out to be false for any number of reasons: (1) coaching by a parent; (2) confusion by the child as to actual events; (3) outright lying by the parent; (4) outright lying by the child (usually at the direction of the parent); and (5) many other reasons.

Understandably, these false allegations can be permanently damaging to the allegedly guilty parent, their reputation, and their career. Not to mention their relationship with their children. Worse, the investigation system in such cases is more of a “guilty until proven innocent” method as opposed to the other way around.

The only way to fight false allegations is to relentlessly pursue the truth.  Our firm is committed to helping those that have been falsely accused of this most heinous of accusations. If you have been falsely accused of sexual or physical abuse, give us a call. We can help.
