It is very easy to be falsely accused of Augusta child abuse or lewd acts on a child, but it is exceptionally difficult to be exonerated in court. Even though 50-60% of molestation or abuse charges are false, more of these trials end in the wrongful conviction of the innocent than any other type of Augusta ME criminal case. With widespread media attention often causing a state of hysteria, this highly emotional charge tends to destroy the ability of the system to handle such cases objectively.
