Defending You From Child Molestation Charges

There are few accusations more damaging to your reputation and your future than those involving sexual abuse of a minor. Many people will prejudge you as guilty even if the accusations are completely false.

I am attorney Rich Cassady, and I am well-known for my aggressive defense of people accused of sex offenses in North Carolina. If you are accused of child molestation or any sex crime involving a child, seek the advice of an experienced defense attorney before you say anything to anyone else. With offices in Franklin and Murphy, I handle cases in Macon County, Cherokee County and beyond.

Protecting Your Reputation And Your Future

Innocent people who are accused of a sex crime involving a minor need a lawyer as much as someone who is guilty — maybe more so. Many innocent people have had their lives ruined because someone accused them of molesting a child. The following are examples of how an innocent person can be wrongfully accused of a sex crime involving a minor:

  • An ex spouse accuses her former partner of molesting their children out of revenge, or to gain the upper hand in a divorce or child custody dispute.
  • A child accuses a parent of a sex crime because he or she is angry over being grounded or having his or her cellphone taken away.
  • Adults brainwash a child into thinking he or she was a sex crime victim over an event that never happened.

Unfortunately, you can face devastating consequences even if the only evidence against you are the statements of an accuser. Discussing the accusation with the police can be extremely dangerous. Anything you say can be twisted around to mean something you never intended. For example, a statement saying you were alone with a child can be used as probable cause to arrest you.
