Child abuse is a serious offense and all allegations of child abuse with merit should be thoroughly investigated. However, false allegations of child abuse are common in the state of Nevada. All it takes is someone that is angry, jealous or seeking revenge to accuse you of child abuse for it to have a profound effect on your life, your job and your family. Similarly, evidence against the defendant in child abuse cases can be misleading. The Defenders also understand one moment of weakness or frustration should not lead to dire consequences. Single, isolated incidents of poor judgement are something that every human is susceptible of.
