Often, there are warning signs of child molestation. Identifying them can often be very challenging. That’s why it’s important to know what to look for as soon as possible. That way, you and your family can hopefully put a stop to such sexual abuse and assault as soon as possible.

Andrus and his legal team – including his wife, Cynthia – take these cases very seriously because we know what’s at stake. That’s why we want to meet with you.
Warning signs of child molestation
The warning signs of child molestation can be subtle or sometimes very obvious. They include:
- Unusual bruises or unexplained injuries
- Blood stains on clothes, especially underwear
- Unexplained changes in mood
- Sudden weight loss or loss of appetite
- Bed wetting or frequent nightmares
- Awareness of sex or sexual matters at a young age
- Unexplained absences or extra time away from home
You know if something seems wrong. If you suspect something, say something. It’s better to be wrong than waiting to take legal action to protect your child or another loved one from abuse.
You’re not alone. Talk privately with a Utah child abuse attorney.
Some parents and adults are reluctant to take legal action. They’re afraid they may be wrong and could be pointing the finger at an innocent person. It is better to be wrong and have the police investigate a potential incident. Otherwise, the abuse could continue for weeks or months or perhaps even years.
