Consequences Of A Conviction For Child Sexual Abuse

Child sexual abuse or molestation is a very serious charge. Depending on the circumstances in your case, you could be facing a second-degree or first-degree felony. This means you could face anywhere from one year to life in prison. You will also be required to register as a sex offender and may have limitations on where you can work or live.

I can help you fight these charges and protect your rights at every stage of the legal process.

Has Your Child Been Taken From You?

Teachers, doctors, child care providers and others who care for children are legally obligated to report signs of abuse. This means that a misunderstanding or false accusation can quickly spiral out of control and lead to the removal of the child from your home. If this occurs during a divorce or custody dispute, these charges can result in the loss of visitation rights.

Physicians have the ability to keep a child in protective custody for up to 72 hours if they believe the child is being abused. Likewise, Child & Family Services can remove a child from the home and place him or her in protective custody. I can protect your rights as a parent and defend you from accusations of molestation and abuse in all forums.
