DuPage County Child Molestation Lawyers
Defending Against Allegations of Sex Crimes Involving Children
There are few criminal charges that can cause more damage to your future than those involving sex crimes against a child. If you are accused of child molestation, you face the prospect of lasting damage to your personal reputation, career prospects and family relationships. Because of the priority placed by prosecutors and police on pursuing perpetrators of crimes against children, a rush to judgment can ensnare innocent individuals. Whether you are under a cloud of suspicion because a child is involved in a suggestive interview with a therapist or a vindictive ex-spouse is seeking an advantage in a child custody dispute, there are many scenarios that can result in false allegations of molestation.
Our experienced Illinois sex crimes attorneys at Ramsell & Associates, LLC have represented parents, daycare providers, teachers, clergy (priests), youth activity coordinators, coaches and others charged with molestation. While a conviction for child molestation can destroy your life, many innocent people are charged with this child sex crime. We have defended clients against such charges alleged by vindictive ex-girlfriends and emotionally unstable teenage girls against a foster parent, relative, boyfriend or stepfather.

Illinois Child Molestation Defense Strategies
Our criminal defense lawyers have successfully obtained recantation of allegations from complaining witnesses in molestation cases by investigating the facts and circumstances. We might be able to establish that you were not even in the home when the alleged misconduct occurred. Alternatively, the complainant’s reliability or credibility might be questionable because of drug use or medication taken for mental illness or depression. A substantial delay in reporting the alleged inappropriate contact also might indicate that the claims are fabricated or that the complaining witness was coached. While we might obtain a dismissal prior to trial, we are prepared to effectively cross-examine the prosecutor’s witnesses to shred stories and expose false allegations.
Our Illinois sex crimes attorneys conduct a thorough investigation to identify procedural and substantive defenses that can be used to obtain a dismissal or acquittal.
