“The county’s Children and Family Services and police agencies added 792 Orange County residents to the California Department of Justice Child Abuse Central Index in 2009, although lacking sufficient evidence to conclude if child abuse had actually occurred. This attempt to protect children from harm results in a potential for false accusation and violates the principle of innocent-until-proven-guilty.”
