Guilty Until Proven Innocent: Teachers and Accusations of Abuse
Crimes against children are unspeakable. The natural instinct of our society is to protect our children at all cost. In the process, collateral damage has been done to teachers wrongly accused of abuse. Guilty Until Proven Innocent examines thirteen of Greg Lawler’s cases in detail and explores the societal pressures that led to the persecution of innocent teachers. Using real cases that Lawler has litigated, the book explains the role of legislators, the media and the public in the growing phenomenon of teachers being falsely accused of abuse against students.
