When CPS investigates, they often look for criminal wrongdoing. If you are accused of abusing or neglecting your children, you could face serious child abuse charges and harsh criminal penalties. Even if your children stand on your side, CPS allegations can lead to conviction, and the questions used during investigation will be designed to make children say what CPS and the court would need to hear to convict you.
If convicted of first degree abuse, which result from serious injury, you could face 15 years in prison. If you are convicted of second degree child abuse, due to neglecting children’s basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter, you could face up to four years in prison. Third and fourth degree convictions can also land you behind bars, even though serious injury or neglect of basic needs is not involved.

While criminal charges are possible, the termination of your parental rights is also a very serious penalty that could result from a CPS investigation.
