False accusations of sexual abuse in Atlanta

While many people charged in sex assaults are guilty, many others are falsely accused. In fact, recent research indicates that many interview techniques used in alleged child sexual abuse cases are flawed and can lead to false conclusions. Psychiatric research indicates sexualized behavior in children may be attributable to other causes including:

  • Family sexuality
  • Violence
  • Hours spent in day care

Research shows that up to 33 percent of child sexual abuse cases involve false allegations, and up to eight percent of cases involve deliberate lies by children. However, because of the stigma and abhorrence society attaches to sexual abuse, anyone alleged to have committed such crimes often faces terrible consequences. Seeking the advice of legal counsel immediately can only help in reaching a resolution of your case and getting your life back on track.
