In recent times, there has been an upsurge in cases of child molestation, which is an issue of deep concern. Recently, a former Los Angeles elementary school teacher who taught for more than 35 years had been arrested for the accusations that he sexually abused 20 students. Police say Robert Pimentel has been charged with 15 felonies, and he is expected to be charged with misdemeanors for the remaining incidents at George De La Torre Jr. Elementary in the Wilmington area of Los Angeles. At his arraignment in Long Beach, California, Mr. Pimentel pleaded not guilty to the charges. He is being held on $12 million bail. Mr. Pimentel’s lawyer said his client denies all the allegations and didn’t molest any students. He said the police “were basically soliciting people to make complaints,” and that Mr. Pimentel’s actions were misinterpreted. The defense attorney said, in one instance, after a student “did a very fine job, he hugged her and kissed her on the forehead and they take that as nefarious.”

False allegations of child molestation are not a rare incidence. In child custody cases, spouses routinely make allegations of child molestation against the other spouse. We come across the cases of teenaged children making child molestation charges against their parents. A conviction for child molestation can severely impact the rest of a person’s life through long periods of incarceration, including life in prison for some, and having to register as a sex offender for life once released.
