Falsely Accused of Child Abuse? Here’s What a Colorado Springs Child Abuse Lawyer Recommends

Thursday, 11 November 2010

blog-logoBeing falsely accused of child abuse may be one of the most traumatic events in a parent’s life, and one that would create an immediate defensive reaction in anyone, but be careful not to overreact.  According to one Colorado Springs child abuse lawyer, there are some very specific ways to handle this and other types of violence accusations, and whether you follow them can make or break your defense.

Despite popular opinion, it is not a good idea to speak with a social services representative immediately, or any other law enforcement official for that matter, until you have an attorney present to guide you.  If you reside in the state of Colorado, look for an experienced Colorado Springs child abuse attorney who has a successful track record in defending cases like yours.

Defendants in child abuse cases should know how best to respond to the typical “buzz” questions.  One of these questions might be “Why would a child say it if it didn’t really happen?”  An appropriate response to this might question might be “I don’t know”, because the truth is you really don’t know.  It is not uncommon for investigators to ask the accused questions for which there are no real answers, just to see what they will say.  Don’t fall for this, and never try to speculate on possibilities or you may fall into their trap and end up saying something harmful to your case.

Rushing to retain a Colorado Springs child abuse lawyer may not be the best course of action either.  Start by preparing a brief synopsis of your overall problem, and then submit this to number of qualified attorneys, requesting a response if they believe they can be successful in your defense. Of those who get back to you, you will be able to gage their level of expertise in this type of case by how they prepare their response.
