Rochester Child Abuse Attorney

Child abuse allegations are particularly serious. A defenseless child is the alleged victim in the offense, drawing upon the sympathy of virtually any juror, judge, law enforcement officer or prosecutor. A person accused of abusing a child will face catastrophic damage to his or her reputation, as well as professional and personal relationships. In addition to facing possible imprisonment, a person accused of child abuse may also face the loss of employment and a life forever labeled as a pervert, deviant or abuser.

What constitutes child abuse?

Abuse is outlined in the Michigan Penal Code §§ 722.621-623, 633 and can be any threats or harm to the well-being of the child through physical, emotional, psychological or sexual means. It can be physical harm or even the neglect of a child that is maltreated. Abuse may be reported to the State Family Independence Agency by healthcare officials, school workers or anyone else that suspects a child may be facing abuse; however, wrongful accusations are made all the time.

Unfortunately, some parents and even children themselves will falsely accuse an adult of some form of abuse, whether this is physical, sexual or emotional in nature. A parent may do this in the event of a divorce or child custody dispute in an attempt to get sole custody or limit the visitation rights of the other parent. A simple misunderstanding may lead to child abuse allegations as well. You should not have to face imprisonment and other serious penalties because you were falsely accused of child abuse. Work with an experienced defense attorney who will fight for you.
