Nampa Child Abuse Lawyer
Criminal Defense Counsel for Child Abuse Charges & Allegations
Few cases are as sensitive as those involving the abuse of a child. Emotions run high, juries feel sympathetic, and penalties are harsh. Accusations may be based on circumstantial evidence at best, sometimes stemming from misunderstood situations or entirely false claims. It takes tenacity and an aggressive, well-thought-out approach to ensure the full protection of the accused’s rights.

Such accusations can become public very quickly and may jeopardize your job, your relationships, and your reputation. Involving a Nampa child abuse defense attorney will be your best course of action to minimize the damage and afford the best opportunity at avoiding a conviction or even formal charges in the first place.

The following may be valid defenses to child abuse allegations:
- The allegations are entirely false, fabricated out of jealousy, anger, or revenge.
- The act was misinterpreted or miscommunicated and did not constitute abuse.
- The injury was the result of an accident, not intentional conduct.
- The injury was caused by something other than child abuse, such as a fight at school.
- You acted within your right to discipline your child.
