If you are facing accusations of child abuse, it is crucial to understand the charges against you. Child abuse includes physical and sexual assault of a minor. It also includes neglecting a minor or failing to provide for their basic needs, such as food, shelter or medical care. Child abuse convictions can carry very severe penalties, such as lengthy jail sentences. They can also affect your ability to volunteer or work in certain professions. These accusations can follow you for years, so it is essential to take them seriously and get legal representation right away.
