FELONY CHILD ABUSE

Case Dismissed – 11/17/2016

Charge: Felony Child Abuse

Client’s own children accused him of physical abuse. After proving that the children’s injuries could not have been caused the way that the children and police initially alleged, the Prosecution’s case started to crack. Using a neighbor’s testimony to prove that additional elements of the children’s story were fabricated, it became clear that the validity of the accusations was not credible. Despite these developments, the prosecution continued to push the case. Longwell Lawyers diligently and thoroughly prepared for trial, and using DCF’s child interview procedures against them, we demonstrated how flawed the investigation and resulting allegations really were. When the Defense proved that DCF did not follow their own anti-cross-contamination child-interview procedures, all doubt was removed. Longwell Lawyers proved that the allegations were false, the children recanted their testimony, and the case was dismissed without even the need for a trial.
