Child Molestation Penalties
A charge such as sexual assault of a minor or lewdness of a minor carries the high possibility of a long prison sentence, loss of parental rights, loss of child custody, severe damage to your reputation and livelihood and potential lifetime registration as a sex offender. Call us immediately if you are being investigated.
Child Abuse Or Neglect Penalties
Harm or the threat of harm to a child’s health or welfare can include nonphysical acts as well. If you are a parent, your child will be placed in protective custody, and you may even be forced to surrender a newborn to Children’s Protective Services (CPS). Penalties can include jail sentencing beyond the loss of your child if you are a parent.
