Falsely Accused of Sexual Abuse Overview

Few criminal cases are more likely to end up in trial than child sex abuse charges. It therefore makes sense to work with a defense attorney who understands the special challenges and opportunities that these cases present. To learn about the full range of your defense options for false charges of child sexual abuse in Tennessee, contact the law firm of Brent Horst, Attorney at Law & Associates in Nashville.

Any child sex crime is a very serious offense that carries the risk of a long prison term, the obligation to register as a sex offender for a long time after that, and an additional risk of confinement under the civil commitment procedures for sexual predators. An acceptable plea offer is extremely unlikely under these conditions. Pleading guilty is simply not an option for anyone falsely accused of sexual abuse of a child.

When you work with my law firm, you'll be dealing with an experienced and focused criminal trial lawyer with almost 200 jury cases to my credit. I'm also a certified specialist in criminal law by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization. I know how to attack the evidence in a child sex abuse case. I can often expose the ways that social workers, investigators and law enforcement can lead and manipulate a child into false or exaggerated allegations.

I can also attack the qualifications, credibility and motivations of the so-called experts who will testify about the ways you fit the (imaginary) profile of a sex offender, or fantasize about the danger you present to the community. Most of all, I will make sure that your human dignity is protected at every stage of the case, from your first appearance to the closing argument at trial.

My goal as a defense lawyer is to keep the jury from finding you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and to keep the judge from thinking that a dangerous person will be released into society. I have more than 20 years of experience refining my courtroom skills in difficult sex offense cases.
