Child Abuse

Child abuse or causing harm to a child constitutes a serious and intricate assault crime. Typically, this charge alleges that you either committed an act or neglected to take action, resulting in a child obtaining severe physical injury or enduring significant mental impairment. These charges are classified as felonies, with the degree of felony and potential jail time contingent upon the circumstances and the gravity of the alleged harm inflicted upon the child.

If you are facing accusations of child abuse or causing injury to a child, it is imperative to secure legal representation from an attorney well-versed in these charges and who who will aggressively safeguard your rights. Collaborative investigations by the police and Child Protective Services can lead to subjective criminal charges, emphasizing the need for a strong defense strategy.
