False Child Molestation Charges

Just the rumor of molestation tends to put all the attention on the one accused. Unfortunately, there are many times when it is the accuser who is the actual guilty party. A jealous or angry spouse may want to gain custody of a child and make a false accusation. An angry or confused child may concoct a story to punish or "get even" with some adult, not realizing the long-term consequences of their statements.

Because society considers sexual offenses, especially against children, such heinous crimes, if convicted, the punishments for child molestation are very serious. They include:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Lifetime registration as a sex offender
  • Mandatory psychological treatment
  • Loss of reputation, family or job
