Harford County Child Sexual Abuse Attorney

Have you been charged with physical child abuse or child sexual abuse against your own child or children? As outrageous as these charges may seem to you, it is important to take any criminal charges seriously. Attempting to talk your way out of legal trouble by discussing the case with family, friends, police investigators or the complaining witness is almost guaranteed to make a bad situation worse. You need to find reliable legal counsel before participating in any questioning about the allegations. Contact me, Charles L. Waechter, to discuss your case and learn how I can help protect your rights.

Aggressive Defense Against Child Sexual Abuse Charges

If your friends and family know that you have been charged with child abuse, your reputation may have already suffered. A conviction would be much worse, potentially resulting in the loss of your freedom, your reputation and your parental rights. If you have a job that involves direct contact with children, such as teaching or nursing, your career may be stunted. It is worth your best efforts to defend yourself in light of these serious criminal charges.

An experienced defense lawyer can help you take immediate steps to protect your rights, your freedom and your future options in life. At the Law Offices of Charles L. Waechter, Attorney at Law, I bring more than 28 years of experience to bear on every case. I defend people throughout Maryland, including Harford County, when they are accused of abusing children. For a free initial consultation, contact me to discuss your case at my offices in Baltimore, Annapolis, Ocean City or Bel Air.
