Child Sexual Abuse Defense

Criminal charges of child sexual abuse often involve family members or adults in positions of trust with children, such as teachers, coaches, youth leaders or religious leaders. Stranger-on-stranger child sexual abuse is very rare. The relationships involved in child sexual abuse defense cases can make them very difficult to resolve.

Brill Legal Group, P.C., has a great deal of experience handling emotionally sensitive criminal defense matters such as sex crime cases. We have successfully navigated this touchy landscape with integrity and determination to advocate effectively on our clients’ behalf. Successful defense strategies differ greatly from one case to another. Examples of factors that may go into the defense of someone charged with child sexual abuse include:

  • Identification issues
  • Complaining witness credibility issues
  • Misunderstanding or exaggeration issues
  • Age awareness issues
  • Behavior disorder issues

  • 11 years old or younger
  • 14, 13 or 12 years old
