Solano County Child Abuse Defense Attorneys

Qualified Criminal Defense Lawyers in Fairfield, CA

Among criminal accusations, child abuse is not only one of the hardest crimes to defend, but it is also one of the most hated criminal acts. That means that anyone accused or convicted of child abuse will receive intense hostility from their peers, their family, the courtroom and even from others while in prison.

False accusations are made and credited far too often, leaving innocent people to suffer at the hands of society. Therefore, fighting a child abuse accusation not only means defending against the potential legal penalties but also the loss of your reputation and dignity.

What Constitutes Child Abuse?

A child abuse accusation is one of the easiest to invent or falsify and is yet one of the hardest crimes to defend. An accident may lead to allegations of physical abuse.

  • Anger
  • Jealousy
  • Revenge

Other forms of child abuse that may lead to a criminal conviction include:
