Types of Child Abuse Cases

A variety of situations can result in child abuse charges. These cases are often complicated and emotionally charged. The penalties of a conviction can be severe. In addition to fines and jail time, you may also be required to register as a sex offender if the abuse was sexual in nature. A conviction can affect your ability to find employment, rent a home, and maintain custody of your child.

Child abuse cases may involve:

  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Neglect
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sex with a minor
  • Rape
  • Child pornography
  • Child prostitution

Addressing False Allegations

Unfortunately, false accusations of child abuse are all too common. Whether a malicious former spouse accused you of abuse or a teacher misunderstood a child’s injury, you should not be punished for a crime you never committed.

If you have found yourself unexpectedly facing criminal charges, you should act quickly and secure legal representation as soon as possible. Even if you know yourself to be innocent, the stakes are too high to risk representing yourself. Call the Sacramento child abuse lawyer at the Law Office of Gilbert B. Vega in your time of need.
