The charge of child abuse is obviously a very serious one. Children are generally unable to defend themselves against the abuse of an adult, and therefore the court treats any case of child endangerment with high importance. However, not all child abuse cases are as straightforward and simple as they might seem. Abuse charges are often based on circumstantial evidence and the testimony of a child who may not be accurately recounting the events. Unfortunately, innocent people are often charged with child abuse due to circumstances that are out of their control. If you are being charged with child abuse or endangering the welfare of a child and wish to fight your charges in court, call our offices today.
