Crimes Against Children
Accused of harming a child? Let us fight for you as your criminal defense attorney.
Crimes against children are viewed with extreme prejudice by the majority of the population. If you are even accused of any of the following crimes, it could prove extremely damaging to your personal and professional life:
- Annoying or Harassing a Child
- Lewd Acts with a Child
- Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child
- Child Pornography
- Child Abuse
- Child Abduction/Kidnapping
Needless to say, a conviction for one of these crimes would be even more damaging. In order to prevent any unfair convictions—and, ideally, stop investigations into unfounded allegations as quickly as possible—you need to retain an experienced defense attorney.
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we have the skills and experience needed to provide superior quality representation, plus the aggressive attitude required to zealously defend your rights and interests. We’ll fight to bring your case to the quickest and most beneficial resolution possible, in order to minimize the impact of the experience on your future.
Possible Defenses for Crimes Against Children
The specifics of your defense strategy will depend on the nature of the crime you are accused of, the facts of your case, your criminal background, the disposition of the DA and prosecutor, and other factors.
Insufficient evidence and mistaken identity are both common defenses for crimes against children. Unfortunately, children can be coached into providing false testimony, make mistakes in their recollections, or blame the wrong person by “perpetrator substitution.”
You can rely on Perlmutter & Pourshalimi to choose the best defense strategy for your particular case. We know the best ways to expose false allegations as well as how to properly vet and interpret highly technical forensic evidence such as doctors’ reports or saliva, hair, skin, and semen samples. We will work tirelessly to undermine the prosecutions’ evidence as well as to gather new evidence that may be useful for your defense.
