How We Use Expert Witnesses in Child Abuse Cases

An Expert Witness Can Make or Break Your Sex Crime Defense

Allegations of child sexual abuse are always taken seriously. Unfortunately, emotions often rule the day and facts are set aside. A successful defense against false allegations of child sex abuse or sexual molestation of children often requires the testimony of expert witnesses. Child psychologists and child welfare experts are often able to sort out fact from fiction when allegations are made.

At Roberts Law Group in Raleigh we work with a network of top legal and child welfare experts to prepare a strong, clear defense in child abuse cases. Contact our law office online today or at 919-521-4646 to schedule a free consult with an attorney.

Creating Reasonable Doubt In A Child Abuse Case

We use expert testimony to create reasonable doubt and protect your freedom. Often, a well-made point of fact is all it takes to punch a hole in the prosecution's case against you. We have the resources you can rely on. Attorney Patrick Roberts served as an Assistant District Attorney in three North Carolina counties before devoting his legal career to defense work. He has prepared cases using expert witnesses and specialists. We know the right people to call. We know the questions to ask. We know how to present a clear case that casts reasonable doubt on sex offense accusations.

Our sex crimes defense strategies include:

  • Using the expert witness testimony of leading sexual abuse specialists
  • Investigating the motivations of your accuser to root out false accusations of child sexual abuse
  • Using experts in computer forensics to assert your innocence
  • Eliciting testimony from licensed psychologists and medical professionals about the truth of your accuser's statements

It is the prosecutor's burden to prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a child abuse case. It is our job, as your criminal defense attorney, to create reasonable doubt as to the truth of the accusations you face. When that requires hiring experts to testify on your behalf, we know who to call and we know the questions to ask.
