Interviewing Child Victims — Searching for the Motivation Behind the Accusations

Successful child sexual abuse defense requires extensive experience. It only takes a few accusations by a young child to get an entire community up in arms against the accused. Children often have their own motivations for making accusations and getting the attention of their parents. Making matters worse, many inexperienced criminal defense attorneys don't know how to interview children; focusing on the accusation, rather than the motivating factors.
