When it comes to child sexual and physical abuse charges, the people who
are accused most often are those in day care, education and sports-related
activities. The likely reason for this is clearly not because teachers,
coaches or day care providers are more likely to engage in child sex abuse,
but instead that these are all professions that deal with the care and
education of children, and the people in those positions are responsible
for the protection of children. When rumors of abuse start, parents and
investigators rightfully take them seriously. Once a report is made to
law enforcement, an investigation will commence.
A teacher, coach or child care provider can be completely innocent of sexual
misconduct and be the potential victim of false allegations of a child.
What may have started as an innocent comment by the child could lead to
further questioning and interrogation of the child until he or she starts
to believe that something terrible happened. The unskilled questioning
of a child can be extremely problematic. Several criminal cases and scientific
studies have provided evidence that children’s memories can be tainted
by improper law enforcement interview techniques. Furthermore, experts
in the area of child forensic interviews generally agree that excessive
and aggressive questioning by parents who suspect sexual abuse can also
improperly influence a child’s memory.

Sexual and Physical Abuse Charges Involving Day Care, Teachers, Coaches
Upon learning of sexual assault allegations, most teachers, coaches, and
day care providers become immediately concerned with how the allegations
will affect their jobs and reputations. They want to clear their names
immediately. Often they submit themselves to interrogations without consulting
with an attorney believing that they can set the record straight by themselves.
The unwitting coach who believes he is clearing his name often provides
corroboration to parts of the allegation against him, resulting in arrest.
It is important for any innocent person accused of a crime to know his
or her rights and when and where it is beneficial to assert those rights.
There is a lot on the line in child abuse cases; especially if it is for
sexual abuse or
child molestation. If convicted, you face not only potential jail time and fines, but also
being listed on the
sex offender registry or child abuse registry. This seriously hampers one’s ability to
obtain employment, not to mention ruining one’s reputation. We will
fight for your future. Reach out to Berry Law Firm today for help.
