False Allegations of Child Maltreatment
According to the Child Maltreatment 2015, a report released by the Child Protection Services, there were 4 million referrals that involve the alleged maltreatment of about 7.2 million children. Child maltreatment includes medical and psychological neglect, as well as physical and sexual abuse.
About 82 percent of the children investigated, however, were found to be non-victims of maltreatment. The report says that, overall, 55.9 percent of the filed reports were unsubstantiated, while another 10.5 percent involved none of the alleged maltreatment.
Although these reports are made in good faith, false allegations can be detrimental to the lives of the accused. If the defendant is convicted, the state can take the child away from them.
Those who are wrongly charged with child abuse need a competent legal counsel to defend their innocence in court.
