Child Abuse Defense Lawyer in Solano County

The failure of a guardian to provide for a child’s needs may constitute child neglect. This may include inadequate food, shelter, clothing or medical care. Failing to provide a clean environment or necessities for personal hygiene may also constitute child neglect. Child neglect may be a form of emotional abuse when a parent or guardian ignores a child or otherwise causes emotional or mental distress and harm through neglect. According to California law, neglect involves the negligent treatment or maltreatment of a child and may include both acts and omissions by a parent or legal guardian.

Willfully neglecting or abandoning a child may result in serious criminal charges and grave penalties. A typical child neglect charge in Solano County, California may be a misdemeanor and a conviction may result in fines of up to $2,000 and/or imprisonment in county jail for up to one year. In determining a parent or guardian’s ability to provide proper care, the court will look at income, social security and other benefits that the defendant may have received at the time. Child neglect may also involve failing to care for an unborn child in the womb.
