Child Abuse Charges in Detroit, MI
When physical or mental harm comes to a child, serious felony child abuse charges can result. According to legislation in the state of Michigan, child abuse includes any non-accidental physical or mental harm cause to a child by an individual who is responsible for the child’s health and welfare. Parents, legal guardians, teachers, pastors and priests, or anyone else entrusted with the health and welfare of a child can be charged with child abuse. The most serious cases, which involve intentionally inflicted serious physical or mental harm, can result in first degree child abuse charges. In these cases, brain damage, broken bones, or internal injury is often involved, making it critical to get to the bottom of what really happened as soon as possible. Extreme mental abuse which leads to interference with intellectual or emotional development can also result in felony 1st degree child abuse charges, which carry harsh maximum potential penalties.
In child abuse cases involving less serious injury, third degree child abuse charges can result. No matter what the specifics of the accusations you face, it is important to work with a skilled attorney as soon as possible. If convicted you could face up to 15 years in prison, along with a criminal record and the negative effects which can result from a felony conviction.
