Common Defenses to Elder Abuse

With over two decades of experience, The Stoves Law Firm, P.C. has developed several effective defenses against charges of Elder Abuse. While every case is unique and should be treated as such, these are some defenses that are commonly found through almost all Elder Abuse cases:

  • Insufficient Evidence: A common defense is that the prosecution has not provided enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime.
  • Mistaken Identity: Another defense can be that the elder abuse was committed by someone else and the defendant was incorrectly identified as the perpetrator.
  • False Accusation: The defendant may argue that they have been falsely accused of the crime due to a misunderstanding, miscommunication, or intentional malice.
