Being accused of sexually abusing a child can be ruinous. This is a particularly sensitive crime that is taken very seriously by police officers and prosecutors who will often go to great lengths to secure a conviction.
However, it is crucial to remember that if you are in this situation, you are innocent until proven guilty. There have been countless instances of parents, relatives and other adults being wrongfully accused of sexually abusing a child who are ultimately cleared of the offense. In many of these cases, a person is accused and investigated based on suspicions reported to police which are ultimately dismissed.
