Child Abuse & Child Sex Crimes Defense Attorney Raleigh

Have you been accused of abuse against a child? There are many different criminal charges that are considered child abuse, at many different levels of gravity.  At Manning Law we have many years of experience with child abuse cases and our experts can help you navigate any charge quickly and effectively.

Child Abuse Charges

There are a number of charges that people may face regarding child abuse. These are just a few of the many charges under the legal umbrella of “child abuse”:

  • Physical abuse of children
  • Delinquency of children by placing them in possible situations wherein they could be abused or neglected
  • Felony exploitation of children by using them as props or models in photographic and video depictions of prepubescent children in sexual positions or attitudes
  • Taking indecent liberties with children under the age of 16
  • Internet solicitation of minors, internet or telephone stalking or harassment of minors

Child Abuse Cases

Many cases begin with charges set at a much higher level than facts support. Through investigation and analysis of the facts and the situation, then through discussions and negotiation with prosecutors, a different result can be reached, with a better outcome for the client.

The lawyers at Manning Law Firm have been successful in obtaining dismissals of serious sex offense cases against children through trial, or through investigation which revealed that the person we represented should not have been charged, or that the quality of the evidence is such that the prosecution cannot win the case.

In many cases where children are the alleged victims, we bring in forensic experts in child psychology, investigation experts, and others to challenge the quality and sufficiency of the evidence the prosecutors are relying on. In many cases we have obtained Not Guilty verdicts or dismissals for clients who were initially accused of very serious crimes against children. Our child abuse lawyers have the experience and the know-how to investigate and the trial know-how and experience to present determined, thorough and knowledgeable defense trial efforts.
