Maryland Child Sex Abuse
The presumption of innocence is inherent in the U.S. criminal justice system; in other words, the accused is to be held innocent unless he or she is proven to be guilty. The burden of that proof lies with the prosecutors in a criminal case. However, in the court of public opinion, when someone is accused of child molestation or child sex abuse, the presumption of innocence is turned on its head. The accused is immediately treated with suspicion, being forced to deal not only with the legal battle ahead, but the devastation of personal and professional relationships. In order to protect your rights in the face of accusations of sex offenses against a child, you must find swift and aggressive defense from a Maryland child sex abuse lawyer.
If you are accused of child sex abuse, or if you are being investigated, it is absolutely imperative that you do not speak with police, investigators, child welfare agents, or anyone else regarding your case until you have spoken with a children sex offense lawyer. Police and prosecutors are not interested in clearing things up or getting your side of the story. Remember, they assume you are guilty, and they are building a case against you. Insist on consulting an attorney before talking to police; protect your right to silence. Do not allow prosecutors to use your own words against you.
