Have you been arrested, charged, or accused of child abuse?
Child abuse charges are undoubtedly one of the most serious charges a person may face. These charges can lead to serious consequences, including significant prison time, life on probation, and possible mandatory registration as a sex offender. You may not be allowed contact with children including your own and you may be limited as to where you can live and where you can work.
If you believe you are suspected of any of these crimes or if you have already been charged you need to contact a child abuse attorney immediately.
Child neglect charges may occur when someone knowingly allows child abuse to take place by another person. Neglect charges may also occur if a caregiver fails to maintain a child’s physical or mental health.
Child neglect convictions include penalties of up to:
- Five years in prison
- Five years of probation
- $5000 fine
