Forensic psychiatry in France: the Outreau case and false allegations of child sexual abuse.
Child Adolesc Psychiatr Clin N Am. 2011 Jul; 20(3):519-32.CA

Abstract

During the Outreau case in France, 13 individuals were falsely accused of child sexual abuse and incarcerated. The author of this article testified as a psychiatric expert when the convictions were appealed. He explains how purposeful false statements by adults, inept expert witnesses, and the judicial assumption that children do not lie converged to create a tragic legal outcome. This article explains how psychiatric experts should conduct evaluations in cases of alleged child sexual abuse.
