Child Abuse Cases Are Taken Very Seriously. It Is Important That You Have The Best Legal Help Available For Your Protection.
Child abuse was recently addressed by the Michigan Court of Appeals. The case of People v Derek Adam Henry decided September 22, 2015, found the defendant not guilty of knowingly and intentionally causing a child’s death. The evidence showed that the defendant was a loving and attentive parent. There were frequent trips to pediatricians. The only questionable testimony was that the defendant believed the child to be suffering from an illness, but was recovering. There was no evidence to show that the defendant’s decision to not seek medical care was the cause of harm to the child. The prosecution tried to argue that the death of the child proved that defendant had the intent to harm the child. The court determined that you cannot assume wrongful intent simply based on a tragic outcome.
In this case the government was prosecuting parents who had just lost their child. There was never anything presented that they were bad parents in any way. This is tragic and an overstepping by the prosecutor. This type of an overreaction by the Government is why you need to have an expert defense attorney help protect you and your rights.
