Child abuse is one of the most serious offenses to be charged with. Unfortunately, many arrests for suspected child abuse come about from false or exaggerated accusations. For example, a disgruntled ex-spouse may make an accusation of child abuse, or may convince your child to claim they have been abused, in an attempt to influence a court decision on child custody. Your child may have made a false accusation of child abuse out of anger, or to get back at you for something you said, in many cases not realizing the seriousness of such charges. In other cases, an innocent action, misconstrued by another, may be enough to lead to felony charges. Certain professionals, such as doctors, teachers and others are required to report suspected abuse, and when this takes place, an innocent person could be facing a serious legal problem.
