This web-site was established to provide anyone falsely accused of child abuse with easy access to advice, attorney referrals, expert testimony, ways to protect yourself, and ways to fight the Child Protective System. This web-site is in it's initial stages, but I wanted to get it available as quickly as possible. I will continue to try and make this website an all encompassing site to aid anyone who has been falsely accused of child abuse. However, I can not be liable for the accuracy of the content on other sites. Before taking any action recommended on any internet site, ensure that it does not conflict with your local judicial or state laws and check with an attorney to ensure it will not jeopardize your case. The information posted is only as accurate as the person posting the information believes it to be! So surfer beware. Under each subheading you will find as many applicable links as I have found during a search on the internet pertaining to the particular heading.
False cases are primarily due to over-reporting, the
of proper investigation procedures, the lack of training for those who
investigate, and misdirected and biased analysis of the alleged victim
and the alleged perpetrator. In spite of the legal presumption
anyone accused of a crime is to be presumed innocent until proven
in child abuse cases the general presumption by the public is that of
Even if the accused is cleared through a criminal and civil proceeding,
they may still find themselves labeled a confirmed child abuser.
In the eyes of the Child Protection System, if the accused is cleared,
an injustice was done. The closed report may still show that the
allegations were confirmed by the Child Protective Investigator, but
not show that the case was won or dismissed in court. You may go
years before you are aware of this labeling when you are turned down
a position working with children or unable to adopt because of the
abuse check results.
