I'm unaware of the your child's age, but it does make a difference as to how such cases get handled. How old is your child?
My practice is primarily involved in the defense of high-profile sex-related cases and includes lawsuits against public officials throughout the State of Georgia.
No. Not unless the results are stipulated to by the defense and the State. A lie detector test is generally not a good idea for a defendant. He should employ defense counsel at once.
