A: Yes. She absolutely needs an attorney. Child abuse is a horrible crime for which sympathy is rarely granted. Whether your niece is guilty of the offense for which he is charged, or if she is wrongfully accused; she needs to be represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney. A good Criminal Defense Attorney can help her explain her position and plan her defense strategy. She should not speak with DCS, law enforcement or anyone else about this other than through her attorney. Please see my website at www.milazolaw.com
