Child Abuse Defense Considerations
In many states, certain individuals and caregivers (such as public school teachers) are required by law to report suspected child abuse.
The charge of child abuse carries considerable social stigma. Prosecutors are under considerable pressure from the public to pursue charges of crimes against children and are highly motivated to seek convictions for these charges.
Child abuse cases can be complex due to the use of the testimony of children. Prosecutors can often induce the testimony of a child in a manner that benefits their case. The social stigma associated with harming children can lower the threshold of proof in the minds of jurors.
