Understanding False Accusations of Child Molestation
Unfortunately, accusations of child molestation are not always legitimate. False or fabricated accusations can fly during a messy divorce or child custody battle, especially when one parent or party wants to get even or gain the upper hand during a divorce. False accusations can also arise if a person thinks something illegal and/or inappropriate is going on between an adult and a child.
Charges associated with child molestation may include:
- Indecent exposure
- Offensive touching
- Statutory rape
If you have been falsely accused of child molestation or child sexual abuse, it is important to consult with knowledgeable Worcester County criminal defense lawyers as soon as possible. If convicted, you may face a lifelong stigma of being a child molester and will have to register as a sex offender according to Massachusetts law. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP, our Worcester criminal defense attorneys have a proven track record of successfully defending sex offense cases in Massachusetts.
Penalties for Child Molestation
If you have been accused of molesting a child, you may face jail or prison time, probation, heavy fines and fees, and possible psychological counseling. A conviction may also adversely affect administrative aspects of your life. You may be unable to get a job, have trouble obtaining housing and, if you are a student, may have difficulty maintaining your academic status.
Retaining an experienced and tenacious criminal defense attorney is imperative to protecting your rights, your freedom, and your reputation. The Worcester criminal defense lawyers at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can work hard to minimize, lessen, or reduce the charges if the case cannot be dismissed altogether.
