At The Sanders Firm, P.C., we take allegations regarding suspected child abuse seriously; however, we also take the Fourth Amendment seriously as well. In the past few years, various cases have come into the spotlight in which investigators, including child welfare workers, law enforcement officials, and school employees, have negated the Fourth Amendment rights of suspected child abuse perpetrators. In some case, suspected child abusers have had their children “seized” then later there is no finding of abuse against them. Everyone loses. The violation of the Fourth Amendment rights of suspects in these cases creates complications for parents, children, the courts, and those suspected of child abuse. As it is with any type of charge, even in child abuse cases our property and person are protected under the Fourth Amendment.
