Crimes Against Children

Accused of crimes against children? Defend your good name by calling The Mattern Law Firm at 310-807-1263. No reasonable person could ever condone a crime against an innocent child. The state recognizes this and has enacted many laws designed to protect children.

Here’s the sad part: Some of the very measures that are designed to protect children can sometimes cause significant harm and distress. How? By resulting in false allegations against parents or loved ones that then need to be addressed by a criminal defense attorney.

Mandatory Reporters Make Mistakes

One common way that false allegations of a crime against a child may arise is through the activities of “mandatory reporters” such as teachers, coaches, doctors, police officers, etc. These individuals are required by law to report suspected child abuse, and while this is an important and valuable activity, sometimes it ends up opening up an unnecessary investigation that is actually very traumatic for the child.

Another possibility for a false accusation of child abuse is for someone to coach the child to lie, perhaps in an attempt to hurt the alleged abuser or deny them custody or visitation rights with the child.

In any case, you can secure the fastest, most positive resolution possible to the situation by contacting an experienced criminal defense lawyer or help ASAP.
