Child Molestation & Abuse

Bakersfield Child Abuse Attorney

What is Child Abuse?

Under California law, child abuse charges involve the endangerment of children under 18 by physical or emotional abuse, mental suffering, or subjecting the child to, risk or harm. People charged with child abuse crimes face serious criminal penalties and time in jail. They may also lose their professional and vocational licenses, job opportunities and the right to see their own children.

What are the Penalties for Child Abuse?

Charges for child abuse can range from misdemeanors to felonies and carry a wide range of sentences up to life in prison. The factors the prosecution considers in bringing charges include the level of injury, loss of consciousness, prior history of abuse, and other factors that show a grave risk of harm.
