Presenting A Fair Defense To Child Abuse Charges
Criminal allegations of abuse against children are taken very seriously by police and prosecutors in Florida. However, sometimes law enforcement may become overzealous in their efforts to protect children, and an otherwise innocent yet false statement may lead to felony charges and a wrongful conviction.

We Have Experience Building Strong Defenses
When you have been accused of child abuse, your situation may seem hopeless. Everyone has an interest in protecting children. However, kids are susceptible to the power of suggestion and have active imaginations, which can lead to false allegations and wrongful arrests. A parent going through a divorce may even fabricate allegations in order to gain custody of the children all at the expense of the defendant’s reputation and life.
The two-attorney defense team at the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey will thoroughly review every aspect of a case to make sure the whole story is told. We will ask whether the child was prompted to give certain answers by investigators and psychologists, and look for any past instances where accusations were made. If evidence suggests allegations made by a child or the other parent are false, we will make sure the court hears this side of the story. You can rely on us to protect your rights and build you a strong defense.
