Child's Memory In Child Rape, Aggravated Sexual Abuse Of A Child

Child Rape or Child Sex Case (Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child, Sodomy Upon a Child, Lewdness Involving a Child)--in these cases, a child sometimes "remembers" sexual abuse that happened years earlier at ages as young as 18 months.  You'll see cases in which a 14 year old girl, for example, will remember being sexually abused by her father while he was changing her diapers at the age of 18 months.

There are 2 problems with these case--the "suddenly remembering" portion plus the ability to remember something to happened at such a tender age.  These child sex abuse cases require an memory expert.  Unfortunately, the good experts are very expensive and can be cost-prohibitive for many defendants.   A good memory expert can attack a "repressed memory" case as well as dispute the ability of a very young child being able to remember sexual touching at as an infant.

There was a case in another state, the McMartin case, wherein children were coming forward with horrible tales of abuse years after the fact, saying that they had recovered repressed memories of the abuse.   Ultimately, it was discovered that the allegations were false.  

If you are facing charges of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, sodomy upon a child, rape of a child or any child sexual abuse case in Salt Lake City, Provo, Logan, Ogden, West Valley City or any other city in the State of Utah, contact me for a free consultation.

There are ways to attack cases in which the accuser is claiming that repressed memories of sexual abuse have surfaced and where the child accuser is claiming that the sexual abuse occurred at a very young age.
