Defense Of Child Abuse Charges

Child abuse accusations develop out of a number of circumstances and many people in Texas are accused of this offense every day. Children abuse might include physical, mental and sexual abuse or all of these behaviors. Individuals accused of this terrible crime can expect extreme charges when convicted, due to the reality that the victim is under age and defenseless. If you harm or murder a minor, you will deal with additional penalties. Child abuse accusations are extremely serious, and attorney Scott M. Brown has seen many untrue allegations. If you have been falsely implicated, your criminal defense attorney will have to work diligently to disclose the falsehood of the claims against you.

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
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Neighborhood service
  • Residential violence counseling
  • Probation
  • 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.
