Cincinnati, Ohio, Sex Crimes Attorneys
Cases involving sexual misconduct with a minor can be complicated by the child's age, the family history of a child, and how he or she is interviewed by social workers and so-called experts. Here, the line between suggestibility and questioning can be easily blurred when a young child is asked how he or she was touched and what was done to them. At the criminal defense law office of Rittgers & Rittgers, we consult our own child psychology experts, medical professionals, and private investigators in cases involving child rape, molestation, and child abuse. We realize children can displace and project anger they have toward their abuser onto a teacher, pastor, or day care worker. That's why we conduct our own investigation and thoroughly review a child's family history. We also meticulously evaluate how a child was interviewed, especially if dolls or picture drawing is involved. Here, an interviewer can put ideas into a child's head that results in false allegations.

If You're Under Investigation, Contact an Attorney
Investigators won't tell you what they know or what they've been told by other people. As a result, when they ask if they can talk to you, don't make the mistake of thinking you can talk your way out of being charged or arrested. While investigators may appear neutral with regard to their suspicions of you, they are looking for inconsistencies in your story or any evidence they believe supports their working theory that you are guilty of sexual misconduct with a minor. Retaining good legal counsel can help protect you against assumptions and circumstantial evidence turning into a criminal indictment.
