his site is dedicated to those who have been falsely accused of some type of child abuse and for the attorneys who represent them.

The National Innocence Project has exonerated, based upon DNA evidence, hundreds of persons who were convicted of atrocious crimes including capital murder and/or rape. A large number of those persons had confessed to crimes they did not commit. Considering that most cases of child abuse do not involve DNA evidence, one can only guess at the number of people in prison that are innocent. The fact that a person has been accused or charged and, possibly, convicted of the crime does not mean that they were guilty of the crime. There are many reasons for this phenomena that are touched upon in this site.

In the large percent of sexual abuse cases, there is no physical evidence or eyewitnesses. Medical exams are routinely “normal”. Yet, people are still convicted based upon a complainant and hearsay/vouching testimony by so-called “experts”. Especially disturbing are the cases where repeated, penile pentration was alleged, yet the medical exam was “normal” with what is considered an “intact” hymen.

In alleged Shaken Baby and other alleged physical abuse cases, there is seldom a search for an “equally competing hypothesis” for causation of any injuries. In most cases, the presumption is made that the injurie(s) were non-accidental and therefore must have been inflicted by someone. What is not commonly known is that in many of these cases, there is a gigantic dispute among medical experts as to whether a particular injury was accidental versus non-accidental or whether there is some non-abusive cause of the condition or injury.

The search for the truth regarding a child abuse allegation involves “The Law, the Science, the Myths, the Reality”. No one wants a guilty child abuser to go unpunished. On the other hand, there is a sentiment in the general public that it is “better to err on the side of safety” which translates into that “it is better to convict 10 innocent people to make sure we get the one guilty person”. That is, unless they are the person accused or a family member or friend.

Justice can be served when people educate themselves on the issues involved and let reason, rather than emotion, rule the day. We seek justice not only for real victims, but for those who have been ajudged a child abuser when they have not abused anyone.

    Are there organizations in Florida for people facing false sexual accusations (and any sort of support groups for their families)?

  2. John Doe says:

    November 2018 I was number 3 in a 4 car pile up in a winter storm that swept through Denver. I had full time work at the time. I was able to continue working by the use of public transportation. January 3rd 2019 my wife walkout out on me; taking the kids, abandoning all of the family bills, debt, and rent. January 7th 2019 I filed for divorce. January 9th 2019 my bitter vindictive wife convinced CPS that I abused our 6 year old son. I voluntarily came in for questioning; I only found out March 19th 2019 from the discovery evidence; that I was arrested for a felony charge of wrongs to minors. February 8th 2019 I was fired from my employment. February 22nd I narrowly escaped eviction proceedings; by vacating the martial home and having to throw away 90% of the martial possessions.

    I have been homeless; living in my brothers basement since. February 22nd 2019. I was waiting for the background check to come back from Deluxe (Check systems) in the springs to start my next full time job. The job offer was rescinded after the background check returned the felony arrest I only found about about on March 19th 2019; I was not informed that I was under arrest, was not photographed, fingerprinted, or informed at anytime prior to discovery that I was under arrest. I was under the impression that I was making a statement to the CPS investigator.

    I have applied to over 100 different jobs since February 22nd 2019. Until the revelations of the felony arrest discovered on March 19th 2019; I had no idea why I was being rejected from all the jobs I applied for. From call centers, to retail, to restaurants, to Radio/Television production; once a background check is preformed; I am no longer considered for the job. All they see is the felony arrest for wrongs to minors. The presumption of innocent until proven guilty dose not apply; CPS has already pronounced me guilty and put me into the Permanent state wide database as a child abuser and I have not had my day in court.

    I was able to begin work at a local family owned restaurant simply because I came at the right time and they did not run a background check. I have been walking and biking to work since.

    I go to trial on June 11th 2019 to prove my innocence and get the arrest removed from my record making employment in full time work more possible.

    I need help

    I need hope

    I need someone to believe me

    I need a full time job

    My son has been Falsely Accused. We hired another Lawyer to file his appeal. Just waiting until the brief. We have his Transcript’s. If you could read them you would see. One of his jurors said they found him guilty because of his rap sheet. It was for Drug’s. Nothing regarding Children. He’s a great father. We have so much evidence proving he’s innocent. The Little girl told family members her Mom made her say the things she said. Long story. But he need’s help. Thanks

    Grandfather accused of sexually abusing his grandchild. Child’s mom and dad (even after divorce, fighting over children). Grandfather not able to hire lawyer to help him with false allegations of child sexual abuse. Do you have attorneys in the Waco, Austin, Dallas or Fort Worth area that might be willing to help grandfather pro bono?

    Law enforcement wanted grandfather to come in for interview, grandfather refused but, did provide a written statement recounting places he was around child, along with other individual’s who were around child (i.e. bio mother’s boyfriend who was investigated for physically abusing child, boyfriend who mom claims RAPED a 17 year old minor female; paternal grandmother’s boyfriend who had 2 previous allegations made against him for sexually abusing 2 other minor male child but who refused to talk to CPS and/or law enforcement).

    Grandfather has facebook messages by child’s step-mom who wrote: “you will never get an honest answer from him, he’ll lie to make everyone feel like he is the victim”.

    Grandfather also has facebook messages between bio-mom and step-mom showing that even before grandfather was around child, child had sexually abused his sibling but yet, father and step-mom not want law enforcement or CPS to know about the abuse. Further, he also has facebook messages from bio-mom and step-mom indicating that even though CPS wanted the child to attend counseling, neither father or bio-mom complied with CPS counseling requirement (but yet, no action by CPS for their failure to comply).

    Grandfather needs help before he goes to jail for a crime he not commit.

    • admin says:

      Dear Michael,
      We do know lawyers in the area but they do not work pro bono. All the lawyers I know have bills to pay also. If your grandfather cannot afford an attorney, he can accept the court appointed lawyer and it is up to him to try to provide the lawyer with as much information as possible. I am very familiar with the Dallas area as I have done a lot of work there. Feel free to give us a call to see if there is anything we can do.

      Our number is 419-865-0513.

  5. Tim Wade says:

    My husband has been falsely accused by my daughter his stepdaughter. The peocutor has found enough evidance (and still looking) to help our case that he has offered to drop 6 of the 8 charges. Our lawyer has basically abandoned us by not returning phone calls not seeing my husband in jail and was not even at the last court date. The prosecutor has only been to one court date so far. I have proof the judge is prejudice to our case. I do have a consult with a lawyer tomorrow. We are scared, my husband has been in jail for 2 months now. The conditions at the jail are inhumane and i am at a loss as to qhat i do now… i have been doing all the investigating and even trying to file motions as our lawyer has dropped the ball. Any advice, help whatever would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
    Kelli

      Dear Tim,
      First, I have never found a prosecutor to be helpful to defendants. I would never be misled into believing a prosecutor is helping any defendant’s case. It sounds more like the prosecutor is dropping the weaker charges. Feel free to give us at 419-865-0513.

  6. Terri Lawson says:

    My fiancee was falsely accused of the rape of a male child in his ex girlfriends family by a convicted criminal who told hi Thm days before the allegation “I will get you.” My fiancee has been in jail since Feb 28, 2019, and due to our money situation is having to depend on a court appointed lawyer. This lawyer spoke to him ONCE, the day after he was arrested. My fiancee has no criminal record and is 66. As all stories, it is long and drawn out. I am at a loss.He is such a good man, and the little boy loves him so much. The childs uncle created this in the childs mind, since he just got back from prison and hates my fiancee.

  7. Chriss says:

    I have a question. My daughter’s fiancé was charged with felony reckless endangerment. His attorney recommendation he take a plea. He did and in January of this year received a one year supervised probation. We have always felt he never hurt the child. Today we received a report from 2 medical specialists who said that the infant had a medical issue that caused the injuries. He cannot afford an attorney to have his plea changed. Please advise.

    • admin says:

      Dear Chriss,
      The question is whether or not it is worth the risk to try to undue the plea and expose him to a prison sentence. you would need a really good lawyer to fight the battle of the experts. I understand how distasteful it is but if he is unable to financially fight then he may be in the best situation. Further, he may have waived his appeal rights as a condition of the plea. Feel free to call us and we can discuss the situation. Our number is 419-865-0513.
