Divorce/Custody Proceedings + Child Molestation Proceedings= False Convictions

Studies show that the majority of child Sexual Molestation accusations that are claimed in child custody disputes are false. Look at this article/blog for the studies. Think about it, it makes sense. If you are desperate to keep your children, as most people understandably are, and are worried that they will be taken away from you, would you do the one thing that you knew would allow you to keep them? Facing allegations that a parent has molested or abused a child, what publicly elected official is going to grant any sort of custody to that parent? Exactly, no judge. That parent is straight-up out of luck.

However, once charges are brought against that parent based on these false claims, not only have they lost the right to see their children, but they are risking spending the rest of their life in prison. But, there are ways to fight these false accusations. It is important to find professionals who are experienced in defending against these false allegations.

    my daughter is going on 13 and in 7th grade, she rides the public school bus to school and another child on the bus made up a story saying I (the father) am touching my daughter just to get a rise out of my daughter and now someone at the school was told and dcs is now accusing me of sexual assault and I would never even think of such a thing. why would they believe a made up story from another 11 or 12 year old child? they told my wife and kid to leave the house and Im here frightened and not knowing what to do.. I need some guidance on what my rights are because we went through all this not even 11 months ago with several false allegations of being bad parents and unclean home with no electricity etc. everything neglectful you could imagine. after 9 months of parental and drug classes and drug testing each week and 3 different people coming to my home each week and my kid seeing a child therapist we were all cleared by a judge but here we go again not even a year later with more false claims by a child and Im scared this time due to the severity of the allegations. help please. what should I do?

    My name is Tisha. MY dad has been falsely accuse of child molestation. My dad only spoke Navajo and really didn’t understand English. He was accused by a neighbor girl that my mom babysat when she was small. My mom babysat the girl and boy when her mom would go out. My dad worked a lot and would come home and sleep. My dad has seven girls that he raised. The girl mother was the one that had two kids from two different father was under the age of 18. She was a drug addict and the girl was in trouble with the law. The girl came from a broken family that her mother was not really there because she was in rehab for years. All her kids was taken away from her. The mother told the detectives that my family will hate her for what she did. The girl and her mom wanted my dad money but I don’t know what money they were thinking that my dad had. There was three allegations but two was dismissed. His prosecutor told me dad that if he didn’t take the plea bargain that he would spend the rest of his life in prison. He was scared and didn’t want to spend the rest of life prison. The lawyer that my dad hired was good at the beginning of the all this. He would tell my dad that he knew that my dad was innocent. Then all of sudden, he told me dad that he was not able to help him cause he knew the prosecutor that was defending the girl. The judge was didn’t like Navajos so he was prejudice.
    This girl ruined my family by taking my dad from us. We all supported my dad in prison took turns visiting him with our kids. He is a good father to us and a very well respected man. He is a Vietnam Veteran who fought for his country and now he is fighting for his life back. My dad spent 10 years of his life in prison for something that he did not do. He is currently on house arrest but is not able to spend time with his grandchildren. When he was in prison he was able to spend time with them. Please help us prove that my dad is innocent. We desperately need some help.

      Dear Tisha,
      Sadly there is limited things that can be done when someone take a plea. I would be concerned that your father was forced to waive his appeal rights during the plea. If that happened it limits his options even more. You can call us and we will be happy to talk to you about this if you like. Our number is 419-865-0513.

    My son is 19 going on 20 and his dad’s girlfriend’s daughter has accused him of abuse. The story of events have changed 2 to 3 times and my son was never given the opportunity to give a statement to defend himself before or after his arrest. He has alibi’s for the accused dates and has now taken a polygraph test which he passed with 99.96%. Yet we feel that the appointed attorney has not tried anything in his defense. We are still waiting for anyone to even try to speak with him. All proceedings with this case have been based off of a little girl that keeps changing her story. Can someone please help us on what to do?
