The Consequences of Sexual Abuse Accusations

An accusation of a sex crime or an internet sex crime, even on false pretenses, is a serious matter with potentially devastating consequences. State prosecutors are expected to secure a conviction in sexual abuse and molestation cases, as this is seen as a sensitive issue in society. They will do all they can to show that you are guilty, regardless of what the actual evidence in your case suggests.

If you do not fight back, you could be convicted and face sentencing that include:

Even without being formally convicted, the accusation of being a sexual offender can have immediate and severe life-changing impacts. You may lose the right to retain legal custody or visitation with your children, you could be pressured to relocate, and you may even be denied job opportunities.

Fight Accusations of Child Abuse

The most serious form of sexual abuse is widely considered to be child abuse, or the sexual exploitation of a minor. This offense can cause massive damage to your reputation and wellbeing. At Bleile & Dawson, we understand your plight, having seen numerous child abuse and sexual assault cases in our years of legal practice.

We have come to understand that many accusations of child molestation are false claims by spouses who want an upper hand in divorce or family law proceedings. In other instances, a child’s statement may be misunderstood or intentionally misconstrued by another to defame you. No matter what is going on, know that we can stand by your side and ensure you are given fair treatment in court.
