Sex Crimes: Child Sex Abuse
Often when a client is accused of sexual abuse of a child, the accusation is made by someone who may have a motive or wish to hurt you for revenge for some other personal reason. This can be an ex-spouse, a disgruntled relative, or neighbor. When this happens, a complaint is often made to the police. Suddenly a third party is calling you asking you for an apology. Don’t do this — the police can legally record you and the call may be recorded surreptitiously by the police. The person receiving the call is often told that “the child is feeling very badly about what has happened between the accused and the child.” Often, the person making the call will be encouraged by law enforcement to attempt to get the accused person to admit some level of participation if only to say “that they were sorry if anything ever happened.” Unfortunately, sometimes people receiving these calls are confused by the phone call and out of frustration, ultimately say words to the effect that they are sorry if the child has been hurt or bothered. Don’t let them trick you!
