Child Molestation Allegations
The defense of child molestation charges requires a significant level of familiarity with the relevant laws and the criminal justice system in which the charges are being brought. The prosecutors and police have a great deal of resources on their side, and they know that judges and jurors are prone to taking the word of children or adults who make allegations of child molestation. Indeed, a jury may issue a guilty verdict based solely on a testimony from a child.
