TRUE AND FALSE ACCUSATIONS OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE
Wallin & Klarich has been representing people accused of committing sex crimes for over 30 years. In that time, we have represented countless people accused of child molestation that they never committed. False allegations are common. Usually as a result of a nasty divorce/child custody proceeding, the child will disclose molestation regarding a parent. In other situations, it can be as a result of a child that has a motive to lie about an adult- whether it be a teacher who gave the student a bad grade, or a step father who the child is resenting. In any situation, the mere allegation can be devastating and usually casts a dark cloud on the suspect regardless of guilt or innocence. The criminal defense lawyers at Wallin & Klarich have successfully defended many people accused of these types of crimes. We conduct a thorough investigation, interview witnesses, subpoena school records or psychological records of the child. In addition, our law firm will:
• Seek consultation with a psychologist. Many times, a doctor can evaluate our client and testify that our client does not fit the sexual profile of a person who would commit such a sex crime.
• Seek a medical doctor to review the prosecution’s expert opinion that there are physical findings on the child consistent with molestation. These findings can often be attacked.
• Hire an investigator to investigate the background of the child to establish that the child has a motive to lie about our client or perhaps has a reputation in the community for being untruthful.
