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
- Sexual abuse
- Sex with a minor
- Child pornography
- Child prostitution
