Child on Child Abuse
When an adult is accused of physically or sexually abusing a child, it is a traumatizing event. After all, most children are abused by people that are known and trusted, and a parent is a common suspect. However, over a third of sexual abuse is not caused by adults but instead is committed by individuals under the age of 18. At Kronzek & Cronkright, PLLC, we understand exactly what is at stake in child on child sexual abuse cases, how to successfully defend a client's rights, and win. With many years of combined courtroom experience with juvenile and criminal defense, our firm has the knowledge and strategy you need in tough times like this.
What is Child on Child Abuse?
Child on child sexual abuse is where a child who has not reached sexual maturity is sexually abused, molested, or exploited by other children or teenagers. This type of sexual activity occurs without consent. The conduct is different than anatomical exploration and play because the goal usually is sexual stimulation resulting in orgasm. This type of abuse tends to happens between siblings in a family.
Juvenile Sex Crimes
Juveniles that engage in sex crimes may end up facing criminal charges. Please visit our sexual assault page for more information. Regardless of whether your child is charged with criminal sexual conduct or is still being investigated, you need experienced attorneys by your side that understand both the juvenile court system and adult criminal prosecutions. Every case is different and merits a discussion with a lawyer about your options.
Cutting corners and gambling with your child's future is not an option. If your child ends up on the Michigan sex offender registry, it can limit future opportunities for school and employment. Additionally, no parent wants to hear their child labeled in the community as a child molester, pedophile, predator, or mini-perp. We work just as hard defending our juvenile clients as we do for our adult ones. Juvenile offenders, especially ones with a previous criminal history, can face serious adult penalties, including prison, fines, restitution, probation, rehabilitation, and more. Furthermore, if your child has alcohol and substance abuse problems that contributed to these charges, tell us so your child can get the necessary help as well.
