The Falsely Accused and Attorneys who represent them

……..Attorneys listed by State:  Click on link to the right……………….(A)

This 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.

      You may want to talk with a civil lawyer to see if there is anything that can be done.

    Hello my name is Leilia and I am writing in regards to my brother John who is currently in Airway heights. I can’t tell you for how long because for the past 6 months he has been sitting in jail with no actual sentence. Let’s start from the beginning. My brother and his wife have always had a volatile relationship physical and emotional abuse from both sides. Neither are great parents to say the least. In 2011 my brother went to jail for domestic violence after released knowing that his wife and her family would keep coming after him. His mother in law stated she would make sure that somehow he spent the rest of his life in jail where he belongs (she told this to me I then warned him). In fear of this he came to North Carolina to live with me. In 2013 he moved out but her and her family did not know this. I moved back to Washington in the beginning of May 2013. His wife then began contacting my mom asking where he was. She then miraculously heard her children say that my brother did things to them. Supposedly she went next door to her sisters who cannot stand my brother and she said the children then told her. She then called her mother and told her. She called the police and filed a report when investigators questioned the children the only one that would say this happened was her oldest daughter who has been known to say crazy stories. Such as her teacher bit her. And a guy at the store tried to do something to her and he bit off his wiener. She told investigators that she had to have stitches because my brother raped her. An exam was done on her and they found no physical evidence. I had went and seen her when I got back. I have only met her a couple times and my brother’s children. In 2012 I had a child and I wanted her to meet her cousins. When I went there my brother’s son asked if I was John’s sister when I said yes he told me he misses his daddy. By the time we got to court he said he feared him and the two oldest said they hated him. This is not the way they acted at the beginning of 2013. His wife had told me at one of the visits that her youngest who was I think 3 yrs old that she said something. I thought nothing of it because his wife didn’t seem to act concerned or like she even believed. I didn’t know that by this time she had filed a report on her oldest two. I believe she told me that it was the youngest so I wouldn’t ask the two oldest the truth. Every visit she kept asking me if he was in Washington. Suddenly one day I get a text from her saying my brother was in Jail. She said “thought you might want to know”. She used her children offering to me and my mother to have a part of their life all the while trying to get info out of us. The minute they picked up my brother she blocked us on Facebook and wouldn’t let us see the kids. Mind you we never said anything to her about the charges or anything we just wanted to be part of their lives. She never came to any of us out of concern for her or her kids about my brother in any way and she knows that my mom and brother are not close and that she would have listen to any concerns with an open mind (not immediately taken his side). After the process began in 2015 the trial and court process took a year. Every bit of the process had me shocked. There was no real evidence, only hearsay of the children and family. Which changed often. And didn’t make any sense. His attorney used the strategy telling the jury about all the bad things my brother did to show why the family would hate him except he half assed it and it blew up. All her family got up on the stand and said they always liked him until this. Which was a lie. He wasn’t allowed at family events and they wouldn’t let me get on the stand and tell about how her mother told me over the phone that she would make sure that somehow my brother would spend the rest of his life in jail where he belongs. When this all began my mother and I both asked my brother what was going on. We both felt like there was no way they would bring him all the way from Texas to Washington with no evidence. Were we both wrong. The whole trial was a whole he said she said with stories not matching. Their expert saying there was NO evidence but that evidence can heal and go away. I am sorry but evidence of a full grown man raping a little girl does not just disappear. And why would a little girl say something like my dad raped me and gave me stitches. Her own mother got on the stand and said that was a lie. After the jury heard about all the domestic violence they literally put their pads and pen down and stopped taking notes at the beginning. I told him when he called me “John your toast, they hate you and they will convict you just because they think you are a piece of shit”. My mom was hopeful and believed that they would never convict him on that horrible obvious lies that were fed to the children. Well she was wrong they convicted him of everything they could. He filed an appeal and won, but only for the things that require evidence, such as rape. He has been sitting in Jail waiting for resentencing for 6 months. I tried to file another appeal and failed. I don’t know what I’m doing plus I have 2 jobs, go to school full time and I am a single mother of 2 children. I want to dedicate all my time to setting him free but I just can’t. I have no money neither does he I am begging for your help. He has also signed over power of attorney to me if that helps at all. Through this case my brother has had several attorney, couple of which admitted to not being caught up, or unsure of the facts of the case. The attorney that went to trial didn’t want to hear anything from me or my mother. Even when we told him that my brother’s wife’s sister had done the same thing to try and get custody of her kids. The husband had a good attorney, charges were found to be false and he got custody. The attorney was a joke, so was the investigator.

      Dear Leilia,
      You might want to contact the bar association to see if there is any lawyers in the area taking pro bono cases. Check the universities to see if there are any law clinics that would take the case. You can also contact the “innocence project” for the state he was convicted in.

  3. my twins were taken in to cps custody in Nov after a false report was made. I let the caseworker come in my home and talk to me and ny kids and listened to the report which stated my son nathan didnt get his adhd meds because i took them well my son isn’t adhd. He has autism and he doesn’t take any medication and his name is MASON and i use drugs and mentioned their daddy about 20 times. She left saying sounds like a false . I really don’t know what happened after that but she shows up about 20 days later demanding i take a drug test. So i asked had she talked to their teachers or anyone bc this was ridiculous and i in no way neglect or abuse my kids in the slightest bit and she can talk to ANYONE she wants. So me and kids had stomach virus that day and days after so i never thought about drug test after that and shouldn’t have to. Well a few days later she shows up w other caseworker and a deputy a d says i need to sign a saftey plan and place my kids in someone else’s home until we sort this out. Well i let my kids stay only for the night at their Mimi and i was going to see attorney next day and going to get my kids next morning they had only been away from me thst one time. I have always had my babies w me. She went and took them before i could make it out there. She had no warrant no authorisation or emergency but their Mimi didn’t know what to do. So i met her at dhs and chose where they went. I sent them to Starkville to their dad’s mom because i knew i could stay there w them. The shelter hearing did nothing i was confused as to how they still had my kids and adjudication hearing was not held when it was supposed to be because caseworker was not there. I started complaining to anyone who would listen but seems everyone is scared of these people. I did have an attorney colleen H. So for one reason or another court was put off again and again. By the time i was called to stand the judge had placed them bk at my home on jan 11 th bc they had missed 4weeks of school and my son is autistic. So when its time for ne to testify the judge was asking why they were taken in custody the didn’t have one single piece of evidence but the caseworker had lied on me she lied on dr lane office and gave out my info that she couldnt even give me on the phone to their daddy in phone and he was given the same petition i was but never came to court and i know is the one who made the false report. I don’t know why this woman made it her mission to keep my kids away. The history with their dad is one to explain later. My attorney finally pushed to finish court on april 5th i ended up being the only one who was called to stand. When i finished the judge looked so confused wondering how my kids were taken ro begin with. She dismissed my case after my kids were already traumatized for the rest of their lives and said this was most bizarre case and the state did not have one piece of evidence of neglect so there was nothing she could do but return my kids. So how was allowed to go on all these months?? I have so much more detail i took notes the entire time if everything that happened and i know i will win this case if i can find a lawyer who will help me. Ir seems everyone is scared to take cps on. I have researched for months and know my rights were violated. Rob R. told ne u might take thr case so i wanted to email u when i could hoping u would get it before the weekend. My number is 242**** i hope to hear from u soon. I guess i should have mentioned there wad a total of 3calls from time they were taken. Special investigations Mallory M. investigated last one and found it unsubstantiated and i am shocked that people do this

      Dear Tera,
      You need to ask your lawyer for a referral to a civil lawyer with the focus being not only on you but on your kids. If they harmed your children they have no immunity! The problem is proving harm and maneuvering around the immunity issues.

  4. Wendy Torres/Holmes Valladares says:

    I am desperate and need guidance for my partner. He has a 7 year boy whom he has not been able to see for the past 1 1/2yr (no phone or physical contact at all), his ex has denied him any communication from him, claiming he sexually abused him. Back in 2014 he was contacted by CPA with the case of child abuse, he was interviewed and his home was checked as well, no evidence was found of such thing, the mother of the child originally stated her nephew (5+yrs older than the son) was the perpetrator and provided details of the act. She decided (without consulting my partner) to close the case, providing no reason. He was able to visit his son with supervision for a couple of months. The funny part is his ex being the one who accused him would allow her daughter (4+yrs older than the son)to be the chaperone, ironic right? 1 1/2yr ago another child abuse case reopened this time stating my partner was the abuser and since then he has been in and out of court dates with no result. He has been interviewed by the police, CPA agents, and haven’t been found guilty or evidence of such thing. Now he was ordered to take a psychology test to prove he has no mental issues (sexual). He is very desperate and I am afraid he will lose his patience and stop perusing his right. This woman is determined to not allow him to see his son and destroy him as a person by stating he abused his son when she knows the truth. Please we need help!!!

    • admin says:

      Dear Wendy,
      Your partner needs a good lawyer. Losing his patience would be a disaster for him. He should seek legal guidance before agreeing to the psychological testing that is being suggested.

    Please Help! My two year old daughter was taken from me bc of domesticviolence in the home. DCFS in Louisiana flew the foster mom to Iowa where I had been living for 6 months and took my daughter bstatibv they had jurisdiction bc my case was never closed. I have done 2 case plans and all they asked but they continue to treat me as a criminal instead of an victim. They took my daughter on December. 10,2016 she is 2 and have no let me see or spoke to her when the whole petition is about my husband it involves high ranking judges and politicans. They are now trying to terminate my rights so they foster family can adopt.idk what els
    e to do please help me

    • admin says:

      Dear Cassie,
      When there is a case plan, you are just stuck. If you do not have a lawyer DCFS will just keep running you over. Sadly, there are time frames to complete case plans or they will terminate.You really need to get a lawyer or ask your lawyer what more you can do. If you live with the other person involving the DV, you will be considered unable to protect your child, in my experience.

  6. Blanca Cosme says:

    Hi my name is Blanca I need help in September of 2013 I was falsely accused of child abuse of my grandson Jadyn he was six weeks old at the Tim,I had noticed a swelling on his left elbow my daughter took him to his pediatrician and she sent him to children’s hospital of Detroit,Michigan there they discovered that he had multiple fractures some of which were healing,my daughter had explained to the doctor at the hospital that I had noticed the swelling while I was watching him,and automatically I was the abuser,CPS came into my home with the police with no warrant searched my house when I asked what were they looking for all I got was its routine,the baby has been adopted out my daughter lost parental rights to both her boys and have been separated to different homes,she filed an appeal but her paperwork was mailed way after the 28 day period to file the petition,I believe that was purposely done so that they can adopt them out.

    • admin says:

      Dear Blanca,
      I am not a lawyer. However, it is my experience that once a child has been adopted it is really hard/almost impossible to undo it. It is a common trick for the paperwork to arrive after deadlines. I always tell people to keep the envelope so you can prove when it was mailed. I hope your daughter is using a lawyer and not doing it on her own.

      You really need a lawyer to help you. Try legal aid or law colleges that have law clinics. Call the State Bar Association and see if anyone is taking pro bono cases involving DFS.

    I am looking for an attorney in California who could help my uncle who has already served his sentence for a wrongful conviction of child molestation clear his name. He did not commit the crime and also was beat so severely while in prison that he needed plastic surgery. There was tons of evidence not admitted into the court record that would have made it impossible to get a jury to come to a Guilty verdict.
