Intentionally or negligently harming a child is a serious crime, and all too often there is a rush to judgment in these unfortunate cases. People who become targets for false accusations find themselves navigating a legal minefield where anything they say can be twisted and used against them. Even if a child is not physically harmed through abuse or neglect, Child Abuse charges can be a third-degree felony, which could mean up to five years in state prison.
Aggravated Child Abuse is a first-degree felony with the most severe penalties. It is very important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
