If My Name Was Placed On the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) Before I Turned 18 Can I Get It Removed? (CPC 11169 and 11170)

Recently, the California Legislature made changes to California Penal Code 11169 and 11170, which requires the Department of Justice to maintain information about you on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) if you have been investigated or suspected of child abuse or severe neglect. Previously, the law required the Department of Justice to maintain information about you on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) even if you were suspected of child abuse before you reached the age of 18.

The law now allows you to be removed from the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) 10 years after the date of the alleged abuse if:

– You were listed on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) before you reached the age of 18, and – You have no subsequent listings of child abuse or severe neglect.

If your name is on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) it can negatively impact your life. The information about you on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI), including your name and the name of the victim, the type of abuse involved, and the findings of the investigation can be reached by authorized persons for purposes of employment, licensing, adoption or child placement. Further, if your name is on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) it may completely disqualify you from certain employment opportunities.

If your name is on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) and you were suspected of child abuse or neglect before the age of 18, it is important you seek out the assistance of an experienced defense attorney.
