Harris, Galveston And Brazoria County Child Abuse Penalties
As with other criminal offenses, the fine for child abuse depends on the defendant’s criminal record, the degree of the criminal activity, the age of the victim (in this case a child) and the degree of the young person’s injuries. Typical penalties for child abuse in Texas include:
- Imprisonment in state or federal correctional facilities
- Neighborhood service
- Residential violence counseling
- Loss of right to own firearms
- Loss of right to vote
- Loss of certain employment opportunities
- A criminal record
Even if you do not go to prison as part of your sentence, you might withstand a lifetime of being ostracized in your community, church and other organizations. You might have problem getting a job, a residence, loans or other things that require criminal background checks.
