Child molestation ranks as one of the most serious crimes in Arizona. The damage to families on both sides of the abuse can be overwhelming. And the accusation alone can cause a tremendous amount of damage even if not true. If you have been accused of child molestation and have not yet been charged, it would be important to hire an attorney who can help you gather evidence to mitigate the charges or help demonstrate your innocence. If a doctor has reason to believe that a child has been molested, he or she must report it to the police or be subject to potential felony charges.
