Solano County Child Abuse Defense Attorney

Qualified Child Abuse Lawyer in Fairfield, CA

Among criminal accusations, child abuse is not only one of the hardest crimes to defend, but it is also one of the most hated criminal acts. That means that anyone accused or convicted of child abuse will receive intense hostility from their peers, their family, the courtroom and even from others while in prison.

False accusations are made and credited far too often, leaving innocent people to suffer at the hands of society. Therefore, fighting a child abuse accusation not only means defending against the potential legal penalties but also the loss of your reputation and dignity. Even if the accusations are false, you will need someone to protect your rights and your future. You can begin by protecting your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent.

What Constitutes Child Abuse?

Child abuse is intentionally inflicting physical harm to a child. It can involve sexual activity and/or physical harm. Even threatening a child can be tried as child abuse in court. Call our firm to get more information on child abuse cases in California!

A child abuse accusation is one of the easiest to invent or falsify and is yet one of the hardest crimes to defend. An accident may lead to allegations of physical abuse. An observation of an innocent action may be misconstrued, leading to sexual abuse charges.

An ex-spouse may persuade a child to make false accusations against you, or a child may make up a story of abuse for reasons of:

  • Anger
  • Jealousy
  • Revenge

Because there is so much pressure to stop actual child abuse, it is likely that child protective services and law enforcement will become involved even due to a single accusation by one person.

There are a number of different forms of child abuse that can constitute a criminal charge. The abundance of different charges may be an explanation for how easily one's actions can be misconstrued for criminal behavior, especially if the accuser has a prejudice.

For example, an accident may have led to a child’s injuries, but this may be misinterpreted as abuse. Or, a child may even invent a story of abuse on the urging of the other parent or for reasons of anger, jealousy or revenge. No matter the particulars of your case, the attorney at Maas and Russo can thoroughly review your charges and determine how to approach your defense.

While the most common idea of child abuse that comes to mind when we hear that term is of a physical or sexual nature, emotional abuse may also be considered a criminal offense with the right evidence.

Other forms of child abuse that may lead to a criminal conviction include:

Child abuse is a criminal charge taken very seriously in the state of California. You could face long-term imprisonment, probation, fines, community service and may even have to register as a sex offender.
