Understand the Nuances of Your Charges
Child abuse covers a wide array of charges, including burning, choking, hitting, kicking, shaking, slapping, pushing, or tossing items at a child. These charges can be misdemeanors or felonies. The penalties for these charges range from a maximum of one year in county jail for misdemeanors to up to eight years in federal prison for felony convictions.
