You must be reading this page because false allegations of child abuse have been raised against you in Orange County, CA and you want your name taken off the California child abuse central registry. Orange County has a high volume of incidents of child abuse or child abuse allegations. Therefore, they conduct many DOJ CACI Grievance Hearings. For instance, in the year 2015, Orange County CFS submitted the names of 755 people to the CACI. Only one other county in the entire state submitted more people to the CACI that year, and that was Los Angeles. There are also a high number of Grievance Hearings held in Orange County. For example, in the year 2015, there were more than 5 times the number of CACI Grieance Hearings in Orange County as there were in San Bernardino. This is astounding given that the population of Orange County is only 1.5 times higher than that of San Bernardino.
It is extremely important that you have a well-seasoned Orange County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearing Attorney represent you because most people lose their hearings in Orange county. Of all the CACI Grievance Hearings held in Orange County, over 70% of them result in the child abuse accusations being substantiated and the individuals’ names staying on the CACI. Two-thirds of all CACI Grievance Hearings in Orange County are based on allegations of physical child abuse, as opposed to sexual child abuse, emotional child abuse and child neglect.
In Orange County, over 80% of all CACI Grievance Hearings based on physical child abuse result in the names of the accused remaining on the CACI. (These statistics are based on information provided to me by Orange County in 2012. None of the cases referred to herein involved individuals represented by me.)
In the entire year of 2014, more than 72% of all CACI Grievance Hearings in Orange County resulted in the child abuse or neglect allegations being substantiated. This means that 72% of people trying to get their name off the CACI…failed. (Note that I did not represent any of the people involved in those cases.) In the entire year of 2015, 65% of people who had hearings failed–their names stayed on the CACI. (Again, note that I did not represent any of the people involved in those cases.) These statistics come directly from the California Department of Justice and Orange County.
What just as troubling is that in the year 2015, of all the CACI Grievance Hearings where the accused was represented by a lawyer, the lawyers only won 37% of those cases. Almost as many people who represented themselves won their hearings as those who had lawyers! This point is crucial: you cannot afford to hire just any lawyer. You need and deserve an Orange County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearing Attorney with a strong record of success.
As you can see, statistically, the chances of you winning your CACI Grievance Hearing in Orange County are slim if you don’t have an extremely knowledgeable and experienced lawyer help you. You owe it to yourself to do everything you can to maximize your chances of getting your name off the Child Abuse Central Index.
