Please contact our law firm at (410) 657-5775 to get advice from a qualified attorney.
Child abuse allegations come to the attention of law enforcement in a few different ways. Often, a teacher or another adult will observe an injury and report it to authorities. The Department of Social Services, detectives, and prosecutors will investigate the allegation and determine if there is a basis for criminal charges.
Some examples of child abuse and neglect include:
A child abuse conviction has broad consequences that impact all areas of your life. You could be facing years of incarceration and your children could be taken away. As a result of the conviction, you could also be facing loss of employment and lose your right to have contact with your children. The stigma of the conviction will follow you long after you have served any criminal punishment.
Crimes against children are the most serious in our society and prosecutors vigorously pursue convictions in child abuse cases. You need to contact an experienced attorney immediately upon arrest or learning that you are under investigation. Our child abuse attorneys in Salisbury undertake their own investigation of your charges in order to gather evidence to build a solid case for your defense.
