Child sexual abuse is a serious crime with potential life-long consequences if you are convicted. Even if you are only under investigation for a child sex crime, you need to make sure you have an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney to represent you.
The lawyers of Hark and Hark are skilled trial attorneys who have handled several child sex crime cases from pre-trial to verdict, including those involving:
- Child molestation

Discovering Alternative Motives
One of the most important factors in any child sexual abuse case is the motive behind the accusation. A daughter may accuse a stepfather of abuse out of revenge against an uncaring mother. A mother may accuse her ex-husband of child sexual abuse to take away custody or visitation rights.
Our firm thoroughly investigates the motive behind the child sexual abuse accusations. We look at the whole family picture and highlight any discrepancies between the accusation and the truth of the family's dynamic. False accusations should not stand between you and your freedom.
Having handled many of these cases, we have all of the pre-trial motions updated and ready to use your or your loved one's case. Motion are necessary for discovery, excluding prior records, medical and mental health records, severance, prior bad acts, jury questions, jury charges, and DHS records. Investigating multiple interviews of the witnesses by lay and police investigators always reveals fabrication and witness competence to testify. Filing a Delbridge motion to suggest taint and witness incompetence is important.
Only if your attorney has actually tried these cases do they know and have ready all of these motions. We have tried these cases and are ready to try your case.
Protecting Your Civil Liberties
A conviction of child sexual abuse may result in mandatory registration as the sex offender. This registry publicly displays your photo, address, criminal history and other information to make the public aware of your sex offender status. At Hark and Hark, we understand how laws such as Megan's Law and the Adam Walsh Act can affect our clients' freedom. See our web page on 2012 PA Megan's Law Classification Crimes to understand the repercussions of any conviction.
