DuPage County Indecent Liberties With a Child Defense Lawyer

There is no accusation more damaging to a person's reputation than to be accused of sexual assault or abuse of a child. In the eyes of many people, you may already be viewed as guilty, even if the only evidence against you is the word of a child who may not even understand the charges.

With an accusation as devastating as child molestation, you need a skilled attorney to protect your rights and defend your reputation. As a defense lawyer and former assistant state's attorney for DuPage County with more than 30 years of experience, Philip R. Nathe will work hard to help you obtain the best possible outcome of your case. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

A Charge With Serious Consequences

Many innocent people get caught up on charges of child molestation or taking indecent liberties with a child. In some cases, the accuser is an ex-spouse or another person who has a motive for making the accusation. The alleged victim may even have been coached to say things that make you appear guilty.

Even if the charges have no basis, you still need an aggressive defense to protect your rights. In fact, an innocent person needs a lawyer even more so than a guilty one. You could end up being subject to penalties such as imprisonment and sex offender registration for something you never did.

You should not discuss the charges with police or anyone else until you have received legal advice. Even innocent statements can be twisted around and used as evidence against you. For example, if you state that you were alone with a child, an investigator could use that as evidence of opportunity. Without statements by you, police may not have enough evidence to place you under arrest.
