Patrick Clancy is the co-author of the book “Has a Child Been Molested?” Published in 1977, “Has a Child Been Molested?” shows how caring and intelligent people, including police officers, social workers, child therapists, teachers and even parents, may unwittingly create false accusations of sexual abuse. It explores the multiple myths labeled as “syndromes,” by which law enforcement and medical personnel have lead to so many false accusations against innocent people. This well cited book, available below for free download, concludes with information to assist in avoiding such accusations and steps one can take if they find themselves accused.

A Local Attorney or A Multi-Disciplinary Team of Experts in the field? Focus on what matters?


Does hiring a local attorney give you an advantage with your case?

  • You are being told by a local attorney that he knows the DA or he knows the Judge. Do you think that a Judge or a DA will risk ruining their career by doing a favor for someone accused of a sex crime? No! The judge and the jury are swayed and impressed by a defense presented with skill, which means you should focus on the expertise and experience of the attorney you are about to hire.
  • You are told by a local attorney that he knows the politics of the county. Do you want someone influenced by the politics of the county or someone that has no fear of the local politics?
  • Expertise, experience and skills are more important than hiring a local attorney when your entire future is at stake.

Mistakes today have consequences in the future

Too many times we have to repair the damage caused by a prior attorney

  • Too many times we have to repair the damage caused by a prior attorney.
  • The Innocence Legal Team is often the second law firm hired by the client. Many thought that they initially hired an expert in rape defense but learned that they were wrong.
  • One fatal mistake is pressuring a client who is innocent into a plea bargain before the case is prepared and an intelligent and informed decision can be made.
  • Mistakes in case strategy developed by your prior attorney may be irreparable.
  • Mistakes usually mean that you have spent tens of thousands of dollars before discovering that you have the wrong attorney. This may leave you without sufficient funds to hire the “True Experts”.

When do I call an attorney?

You should call an attorney as soon as you become aware that you are a target of an investigation.

CALL NOW, AVOID JAIL

  • Ask yourself this: ? Has someone made an allegation against me? Are the police working on preparing a case against me? It is time to call.
  • Pre-emptive preparation may help in having no charges filed at all and avoiding arrest and jail.
  • Pre-emptive Investigation can prevent witnesses being lost or changing sides due to pressure.
  • You need an attorney to protect you from police tactics.
  • You can be tricked into an interrogation that is designed to use psychological pressure on you.
  • Beware of pretext phone calls! You maybe psychologically pressured and recorded.
